Elections

The school board is made up of seven citizens elected at large by voters in the district. Members are elected to four-year overlapping terms, with elections being held every two years. At the end of a four year term, members may run for re-election to successive terms. Voting takes place at the general elections in November, and terms begin the first Monday in January thereafter.

Every year, at its first meeting in January, the school board holds an organizational meeting to elect officers and settle other routine business. The superintendent is an ex-officio member of the board who facilitates the work of the school board and is responsible to the board for providing leadership to the school district and carrying our board directives.


On November 6, 2018 registered voters will elect four school board members to begin serving terms in January 2019.

To file for the office of School Board, interested candidates must file an affidavit of candidacy betweens 8 a.m. on Tuesday, July 31, 2018 and 5 p.m. on Tuesday, August 14, 2018. Affidavits of candidacy are available during office hours in the school district’s Central Services Building, 1875 South Greeley Street, Stillwater, MN 55082. Affidavits are filed along with a $2 filing fee or a petition with at least 500 signatures of eligible voters in place of the filing fee. Learn more by reviewing the resources below.
