SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The State Board of Education has filled the vacancies in its top leadership positions.

Board member Richard Sadler of Ogden will serve as chairman, taking over for Bountiful's Kim Burningham who stepped down after seven years in the job.

The vice chairman's job will be filled by board member Mark Cluff. He succeeds Janet Cannon of Holladay, who also held the position for seven years.

The board sets state policies for more than half a million Utah schoolchildren.

Sadler is dean of the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at Weber State University and a former president of the Utah School Boards Association.

Cluff is founder of the software company Wilcox Associates.
