The Sacramento Unified School District school board will appoint a new trustee to complete the two years remaining on resigning board member Ellyn Bell's term.

In a 6-0 vote Thursday night, the board opted to appoint the seat instead of holding a costly special election, said Gabe Ross, district spokesman.

A special election could have cost the school district an estimated $270,000. Bell, who represents Area 1, took a job in San Francisco six months ago and said she plans to relocate there at the beginning of 2013.

The deadline to apply for the board seat is Nov. 14. Candidates must live in Area 1, which includes Land Park, downtown, midtown and Curtis Park.
