November School Board Election

State law regarding the St. Louis City Elected Board has created an unusual November School Board Election for this year. The seats held by Bill Haas (an August 2nd District Congressional Candidate) and Donna Jones are up for election.

Here is some basic information about filing for School Board.

Where and When to File: Filing is done at the St. Louis City Board of Election Commissioners, 300 N. Tucker between 8 am and 5 pm Weekdays, July 17th and Closes August 21st.

Qualifications for running for School Board:
+ Must be a resident of the City of St. Louis for at least three years.
+ Must be a U.S. Citizen for at least three years.
+ Must be a Registered Voter in the City of St. Louis.
+ Must be at least 24 years of age.
+ Must not owe any taxes.
+ Must not have an interest in any contract with or claim against the School Board, either directly or indirectly.
+ Must not be registered or required to be registered as a sex offender.
+ Must not have been found guilty of or pled guilty to a felony or misdemeanor under the federal laws of the United States.
+ Must not have been found guilty to or pled guilty to a felony under the laws of Missouri.
+ Must not have been found guilty to or pled guilty to an offense committed in another state that would be considered a felony in Missouri.
+ Must file a Personal Financial Disclosure Statement.
+ Must file Campaign Finance Reports with Missouri Ethics Commission.
+ Must pay Filing Fee of $100

While the situation in St. Louis City is unique because of currently having an Elected School Board without governance powers and an Appointed Administrative Board making decisions, that will change, and probably sooner as opposed to later. Some additional information on running for school board in Missouri is available from the Missouri School Board Association.
