Consider School Board Candidacy!
Filing Deadline: 4 p.m., Monday, July 25, 2016
On November 8, in the General Election, school board members will be elected in more than 90 percent of New Jersey's school districts. While November may seem a long way off, the time to decide to run for the local board of education is now. Nominating petitions for this year's Annual School Election must be submitted to county clerks by 4 p.m., Monday, July 25, 2016.
New Jersey's 5,000 volunteer school board members govern the education of approximately 1.4 million public school students. No other public officials—elected or appointed—have as great an impact on the lives of our children.
