School Board Members establish a shared vision for the schools that they represent which reflects a consensus of the board, community and district staff. The school board has a wide variety of additional responsibilities, such as adopting annual budgets and issuing interim financial reports, adopting the school calendar, negotiating contracts with employees (including the hiring of superintendents), approving curriculum materials and closing or constructing schools.

Application Guidelines
1) Contact the appropriate county clerk, city clerk or school board secretary (depending upon the office you are running for) to verify that your address qualifies for the position, and to see if there are any other requirements that might prevent you from running (residency within the district for a certain period of time is frequently a requirement). 2) Obtain the appropriate filing papers from the city elections office, usually found with the City Clerk, however in some cities the position may not exist, so in these instances the person to contact would be the City Secretary or someone in the city administration. For school and fire district positions, candidates must file with their district’s secretary. If there is any difficulty finding someone to speak with at the city, contact the St. Louis County Elections Board office at 314-615-1800 to see if they can give you a point of contact for elections administration within the city. 3) Submit the candidacy papers within the 11-16 week filing window prior to the election. Prior to submitting your candidacy papers, you should arrange an appointment with the City Clerk to go over the required paperwork. City Clerks and Secretaries understand that first time/beginning candidates may need assistance and are available to assist with any questions.
