The Somerville School Committee will take input from the public, then interview four finalists for a vacant spot on the committee next week.
The seat representing Ward 1 on the committee has been vacant since Maureen Bastardi resigned in December to accept an appointment to the Board of Aldermen. School committee members previously said they aimed to fill the seat by early February.
The finalists for the spot are Bonny Carroll, Ben Echevarria, Steven Roix and Yvette Verdieu. The hearing and interviews will be held starting at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 22 at the Capuano Early Childhood Center.
