Members of Basehor-Linwood School District’s Board of Education met Monday evening, Jan. 14.

From a policy standpoint, the highlight of their agenda was discussion of the upcoming school board elections.

According to Superintendent David Howard’s blog:

I’d like to remind everyone that we have our local elections coming up on April 2, 2013. We will have three board member positions (4, 5 and 6) up for re-election this year and the filing deadline is at noon on Tuesday, January 22, 2013. If you are interested in running for the school board you will need to file at the Leavenworth County Clerk’s office and pay your $5 filing fee. If needed, a primary election will take place on February 26th.

The Board of Education did redraw the board member boundaries this month to insure that our population within each of the three districts were within the statute 5% variation. According to the 2010 Census, we now have nearly 12,000 people residing within the boundaries of USD 458. The newly created board member boundaries can be seen on our district website and on the Board of Education page on our website.
