How are members of the Board of Education selected?

In most school districts in Missouri, voters elect board members on a nonpartisan ballot. The election is held on the first Tuesday in April. Nearly all school boards in Missouri have seven members who serve three-year terms.


Who is eligible to serve as a school board member?

In order to serve on a school board in Missouri a person must be a citizen of the United States; a resident taxpayer of the district; a resident of the state for one year preceding election or appointment; and be at least 24 years old. Board members come from all walks of life and serve as unpaid volunteers.
