School Board Election Information
Are you interested in running for a position on our school board?
A board member must be an eligible elector of the school district. According to the Wisconsin Elections Commission, in order to qualify for placement on the ballot as a candidate in a school board election, a person must be:
- A citizen of the United States;
- 18 years of age or older; and
- A resident of the school district for at least 28 consecutive days at the time of filing a declaration of candidacy.
In the School District of Wisconsin Dells, school board members are elected according to a plan of apportionment of board seats among the cities, towns and villages in our district. The person elected to an apportioned seat must reside in the designated geographic area at the time he or she takes the oath of office. In all school board elections other than in Milwaukee, each board member is ultimately elected by the votes of the electors of the entire school district. Members are elected for a three-year term.
