STATE—Local school districts are offering informational packets for citizens interested in petitioning for one of the three seats on the Board of Education that will be elected in the annual school election scheduled for Tuesday, April 20.
Each seat carries a full three-year term on the Board of Education and candidates must file a nominating petition by 4 p.m. on Monday, March 1, in order to get their name on the ballot for the election.
A change in the annual school election date and candidacy deadline has been proposed in the Legislature. In the event that the legislation is enacted and the dates changed, the New Jersey School Boards Association will notify local school districts, which will inform the candidates.
All prospective school board candidates can also obtain a “School Board Candidate Kit” online at njsba.org.
