Board of Education election update

Along with the budget vote on Tuesday, May 15, the district will hold its annual board of education election.

Terms currently held by Tim Hems, Jon Mueller and Michael Toleman will expire on June 30, 2018. As a result, there are three open seats on the board, each with a three-year team beginning July 1, 2018 and ending June 30, 2021.

The district has received only two petitions, from Tim Hems and Jon Mueller, for the three available seats. This means that their names will be the only names on the May 15 ballot. However, pursuant to education law, any votes for write-in candidates on the day of the vote will be counted. The qualified resident who receives the most valid write-in votes will win the available seat on the board. If there are no write-in votes, state law allows the current board members to appoint qualified residents to fill the vacancies.
