School board elections crucial to PSEA members

School boards play a major role in the lives of educators.

They have the final say on budgets, contracts, personnel, curriculum, and many other issues.

School board seats are on the ballot this election year, and with cross-filing – candidates can file nominating petitions to appear on both Democratic and Republican ballots – many races are essentially decided in the primary election. A candidate can win both parties’ nominations, which means they can only be defeated in the general election by a write-in candidate.

“There is no such thing as so-called off-year elections,’’ said PSEA Treasurer Jeff Ney. “All elections have consequences, and that is particularly so for public school educators when it comes to school board seats. It is vitally important that pro-public education candidates be elected to these positions.’’
