Candidates can start to circulate petitions Sept. 25. They must be submitted between Dec. 17 and 24.
The seats held by School Board President Ellen London as well as Board members Michael Rosenbaum, Deborah Muller and Ron Worth are up for election. Bennett Brenner, Nick Begley and Steve Schwartz are in the middle of their terms.
Rosenbaum told Patch in July he would not seek reelection while London, Muller and Worth said they had not made a decision at that time.
The April election has taken on added significance because a group of people in the community want the decision on a new superintendent to replace retiring Renee Goier delayed until a new board is seated.
