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 members serve staggered four-year terms, so the entire board is not up for election at the same time.
There are two ways to file as a candidate for election. The first is to pay a $5 filing fee to the county election officer of the county in which the district is located. A person may also become a candidate by filing a petition with the county election officer. The petition must contain signatures of 50 registered voters of the school district or of the geographic area from which the board member is to be elected.
No candidate may withdraw their candidacy after the filing deadline.
