CHAMPAIGN - Monday night the school board interviewed eight candidates and chose 33-year-old Illeana Saveley to fill Greg Novak's Seat until next April. Novak died earlier this year.
    Saveley has two children at Unit 4 including one in middle school and another in Pre-K. All candidates got a minute for opening and closing statements. Board members asked every candidate the same four questions. Everything from consent decree, to what they thought the role of staff, parents, and community members should be in district decision making.
    "Open line of communication that's a big thing," explained Saveley on what she wants to work on as a board member.
    "We have to have communication with parents, teachers and students, that will make a world of difference."
    She will be sworn in on April 23, 2012.
