BOE Election 2021

Two board positions are up for election in November.  Please click below documents to find more information.  

Eligibility:  A candidate for the school board must be a resident of the school district and a registered voter for at least 12 consecutive months prior to the election. If the school district has director districts in its plan of representation, the person must be a resident of the director district in which he or she is a candidate. No person who has been convicted of a sexual offense against a child is eligible to serve on the school board. Because school director elections are nonpartisan, candidates may not campaign as members of a political party.

Nomination Procedures:  A person who desires to be a candidate for school director must file a nomination petition signed by 25 eligible electors. Your school district can provide more information about the number of signatures required on the petition. The nomination petition must be filed with the designated election official of the school district no later than 67 days before the election.

Campaign Filing Requirements:  School board candidates must meet filing requirements under Colorado’s Fair Campaign Practices Act (FCPA). One of the first steps is to file a candidate’s affidavit with the Secretary of State within 10 days of becoming a candidate. Also, candidates are required to report contributions and expenditures on the Secretary of State’s online TRACER program.

For more information about FCPA’s reporting requirements and timelines for filing these reports, please visit the Colorado Secretary of State’s website at www.sos.state.co.us.

Questions: Please contact the district office with any questions. You can also visit the Colorado Association of School Board’s website for general candidate information. https://www.casb.org/built-to-serve_becoming-a-candidate

The first day for nomination petitions to be circulated is August 4, 2021.
