School Board Elections are This Tuesday the 13th

Delaware’s school board elections are tomorrow, Tuesday, May 13. Don’t forget to vote, and encourage your neighbors, friends, and colleagues to vote as well.

School board members play a very important role in the effort to improve Delaware public schools. They help shape students’ educational experiences by setting policies in our public schools like curriculum, length of school day and year, and distribution of teachers. School boards hire, evaluate, and dismiss superintendents; monitor and adjust district finances; and manage collective bargaining agreements for teachers, principals, and other school leaders.

The polls open at 10 am and close at 8 pm.  To vote in school board elections, you do not need to be a registered voter. The sole requirements are to be a school district resident and be at least 18 years old. 

For polling place information, visit the following websites.

For information about several school board candidates, read these recent articles published by Delaware press. If your school district isn’t included below, click here for a complete listing of the candidates, compiled by The News Journal.
