Elf Interactive at Washita Theatre Filing for School Board seats nears  Filing for open seats on local school boards begins in Oklahoma counties on Monday, December 5th. The three day filing period runs through Wednesday, December 7th at 5:00 pm. To be eligible to be a candidate for member of the board of education of a school district, a person must have resided in the district for at least six months preceding the first day of the filing period, and have been a registered voter registered with the county election board at an address located within the geographical boundaries of the district for six months preceding the first day of the filing period.  Local boards govern local school districts. Board actions affect the families of hundreds — even thousands — of students and employees. The duties of a board member include working with other board members to craft policies, approve a budget, and hire/supervise the superintendent who serves as CEO. It’s an impor- tant commitment and should be considered thoughtfully.  Board members have a tremendous opportunity to invest their time and en- ergy in a cause that has transformative power: public education. Board members who are already serving have much to offer their communities through continued service because they have valuable experience and historical knowledge. Other community members may find school board service a meaningful opportunity to contribute and offer new or different viewpoints and experiences.
