School Board Election

Three Board of Education positions are up for election:

District 1 - 2 year term

District 4 - 4 year term

District 5 - 4 year term

A district map is on the school district website.

Candidates have to be a registered elector of the school district at least 12 consecutive months prior to the election and must live in the district they are running for a position.

 

Each candidate needs to pick up a petition to be listed as a candidate and obtain a minimum of 25 good signatures.  A candidate can get their signatures from any registered voter within the whole school district, not just their district.  

These petitions can be picked up at the main school office or administration office prior to August 4th.  Candidates may begin circulating their petitions no earlier than August 4th.  Gathering petition signatures can begin on  August 4th and the petitions are due back no later than August 27th.
