Even when your district is not looking at over $20 million in referendum work, school board members play an important role in the lives of staff and students. Like many elected offices, school boards often find themselves looking for volunteers to fill the roles with the understanding of everything that goes into the position. Sevastopol School District is looking for at least two new members for its board after Karen Brauer and Jay Zahn filed their notice of non-candidacy late last year. Superintendent Kyle Luedtke says he enjoys working with the school board to help solve issues facing the district.
Districts like Sevastopol will continue to accept nomination papers for their school board seats up for election until the filing deadline on January 7th.
