School Board Elections

Three seats for the Board of School Trustees will be up for election in November 2018: district 1, 2 and 5. Since the School Board members do not run on a "party" ticket, the only election is held during the general election in November, not the primary election in May.

The first day to file a Petition of Nomination with the St. Joseph County Clerk to be a candidate for the School Board is July 25, 2018. The filing ends at 12:00 noon on August 24, 2018. Petitions of nomination are available from the St. Joseph County Clerk. Prior to filing a Petition of Nomination, interested candidates must verify their voting precinct with the Voter Registration office. Candidates for the School Board must have resided in the school corporation for at least (1) year before the election. 

Members of the Board of School Trustees receive an annual salary of $2,000. In addition, for attendance at regular and special meetings Board Members received $112. Members attending Executive Sessions receive $62.
