Running for school board

Considering serving your community by running for the District 279 School Board? Learn more about what it means to be a school board member by reviewing Minnesota School Board Association’s resource “Get on Board: A School Board Candidate’s Introduction to Board Service.”

Three seats will be filled by a general election because the members’ terms are expiring; those seats are currently held by Thomas Brooks, Kelsey Dawson Walton, and Tanya Simons. Board members chosen in the November 2022 election will take office in January 2023 and serve until January 2028.

A candidate information packet is available now. The packet includes relevant documents about running for school board and may be obtained from the Osseo Area Schools Educational Service Center, 11200 93rd Avenue North, Maple Grove, during regular office hours (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).

The candidate filing period is August 2 to 16, 2022. Filing information will be shared soon.
