2017 School Board Election Filing Deadline Quickly Approaching

2017 School Board Election Filing Deadline Quickly Approaching

 

Three school board positions will be open and on the ballot in 2017 for USD 360 Caldwell School patrons.  All positions on the school board are now at-large positions.  The three at-large positions up for election are currently held by Chris Baker, Scott York, and Jennifer Brown.  The filing deadline for these positions is noon on Thursday, June 1, 2017.

There are two ways to file as a candidate.  One way to file as a candidate is to pay a $20 filing fee to the county election officer in Sumner County.  A person may also become a candidate by filing a petition with the county election officer.  The petition must contain the signatures of 50 registered voters of the school district.   The general election for these school board positions is scheduled for November 7, 2017.  Should a primary election become necessary that election would be held on Tuesday, August 1, 2017.

If you have any questions about running for school board, please contact the USD 360 board office located at 22 N. Webb Street in Caldwell or call the office at 620-845-2585 ext. 1.
