School board service is vital to the quality of education in our state. Ninety percent of New Jersey’s local school districts will elect members of their local boards of education this fall. The filing deadline for candidacy in this year’s Annual School Election is July 25. The election will take place on November 8, 2016.

NJSBA’s School Board Candidate Kit provides information on the responsibilities of local school boards, qualifications for membership, and how you can run for office.
