School Board Vacancies

RCW will have four School Board vacancies on the ballot at this November’s election. 
A recording of MSBA’s Running for School Board Webinar can now be accessed on YouTube at: https://youtu.be/BhUZMzM2Vmo.  The webinar covers basics such as how to file for the board, reasons to serve on the board — and reasons not to serve on a board, job duties of school boards, and how boards function as a team.  The period for filing affidavits of candidacy for the office of school board member of Independent School District No. 2890 shall begin on July 28, 2020, and shall close at 4:00 o'clock p.m. on August 11, 2020.  The general election shall be held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. At that election, four members will be elected to the School Board for terms of four (4) years each.  Affidavits of Candidacy are available from the school district business office at 301 NE Third Street, Renville, MN. The filing fee for this office is $2. A candidate for this office must be an eligible voter, must be 21 years of age or more on assuming office, must have been a resident of the school district from which the candidate seeks election for thirty (30) days before the general election, and must have no other affidavit on file for any other office at the same primary or next ensuing general election. The affidavits of candidacy must be filed in the office of the school district clerk and the filing fee paid prior to 4:00 o'clock p.m. on August 11, 2020.
