If you are up for re-election or have any open seats on your board for this cycle, don’t forget to reference MASB’s Get On Board resources to do everything you can to avoid any vacancies as of the July 21 filing deadline.

In addition to the 2020 Candidate’s Guide to School Board Elections, the toolkit includes:

  • Indicators of Effective Boards and Board Members
  • Overview of the Open Meetings Act
  • Roles and Responsibilities of a Board Member
  • Downloadable Get On Board logo
  • Informational Videos on how to file and election/campaign finance laws

More resources will be added on an ongoing basis.

Get on Board

Along with several ISDs/ESAs around the state, MASB is hosting virtual informational events where we’re sharing what serving on a local school board entails, the ins and outs of filing and running, as well as providing the opportunity to have any questions answered. The remaining events are on:

  • June 30, Hosted by Van Buren ISD
  • July 9, Hosted by MASB

Please feel free to attend or encourage potential candidates to participate. If you have any thoughts or suggestions to share regarding recruitment and the election process, please send them to [email protected].
