Outline of Kansas with 2019 School Board Election textEvery school district in Kansas is governed by a locally-elected board of education. They are unpaid public servants. School board members as a whole comprise the largest body of elected officials in our country.

The qualifications for effective service as a board member are many, even though the actual legal requirements are few. School boards elections are nonpartisan. Terms of office for a school board are staggered so seats don’t become open all at once.

School board members must be registered voters in the school district and cannot be an employee of the board on which they are a member. If board members are elected from certain areas of the district rather than at-large, they must live in the area of the district from which they are seeking office.

School board elections are held the first Tuesday in November of each odd-numbered year. A primary election must be conducted if more than three people file for the same school board position.

Newly elected board members take office the second Monday in January following the election and serve four year terms.

USD 230 positions up for election: District 1, District 2, District 3 and At-Large
