    Why Run for the School Board:


    Do you care about your kids?  Do you care about the education your kids receive?  Do you care about all of the kids in your community?  Do you believe that our children are our future and they need to be prepared to face the challenges they will face?  If your answer is “yes” to any of these questions, you may be a good candidate for your local school board.


    How many positions are open for trustee in 2023 and what are the terms?


    Two 3-year terms:  Cleve Swandal and Rex Ternan’s positions are up for election.



    Who may run for office?

    There are no restrictions on who may run for office.  There are restrictions on who may hold office.  Individuals employed in any capacity by a district may not hold a trustee position in that district.  Relatives of school or county employees may seek and hold a school office.  An individual may not run for more than one public office.  13-10-201 and 20-9-204, MCA


    What are the qualifications for school trustee?

    Any candidate must (1) be qualified to vote in a district; and (2) be a resident of the school district (or in a single-member district, a resident of the trustee district for at least one year).  “Qualified to vote” means the person must: (1) be registered to vote; (2) be a citizen of the United States; (3) be at least 18 years old; and (4) be a resident of the state and county for at least 30 days.  The person must also not be: (1) a convicted felon currently serving a sentence in a penal institution; or (2) determined to be of unsound mind by a court of law. 13-1-111, 20-3-305, and 20-3-338 MCA and Article IV, Sec. 4, Montana Constitution


    How can someone be placed on the ballot?

    If you are wishing to be placed on the trustee ballot at the May school election, you may pick up the necessary forms from the District Clerk, Rhonda Lahaye.  You will be required to file a Declaration of Intent and an Oath of Candidacy.  All forms must be signed and filed with the Clerk of the District by March 23, 2023.


    You may call Rhonda Lahaye, District Clerk at 578-2535 if you have any questions.
