From kasb.org: "The mission of the public school is to educate each child to their fullest potential. The local school board, an integral part of the American institution of representative government, acts on behalf of the people of each community to translate that education mission into reality.
In 2015, the Kansas Legislature passed HB 2104, changing local election dates, including the dates for local school board elections. Previously school board general elections were held in the spring of odd-numbered years.
The new law requires these elections to be held on the Tuesday following the first Monday in November of odd-numbered years. If necessary, primary elections will be held on the first Tuesday in August of odd numbered years. November 2017 was the first election under the new law.
KASB encourages current board members to seek another term. Your experience makes you an invaluable asset to your community. KASB also encourages other committed, visionary community members to seek election and serve in this important voluntary role in your community!"
Terms of Office
Newly-elected school board members will take office on the second Monday in January following the election. Each term is four years.
