Two positions will be open for school board members to be elected on April 2, 2019, one in Election Area II (roughly the District’s northwest quadrant) and one At-Large seat. Winners of these seats will serve three-year terms from April 22, 2019, through April 24, 2022. Each Board member represents the entire school district; therefore residents select one candidate for each seat.
