The School Board Nominating Committee is seeking candidates 

September 29, 2019

The School Board Nominating Committee (SBNC) is seeking candidates to run for committee positions with terms beginning in January 2020. The SBNC is a committee of citizens elected from across the Village for the important purpose of nominating candidates to fill vacancies on the Scarsdale Board of Education.  SBNC members serve a vital function within our village and we strongly encourage all residents interested in maintaining the excellence of Scarsdale schools to consider running for an SBNC position. 

Each year, two members are elected from each of the five elementary school districts to serve a term of three years on the Nominating Committee, an additional year on the Administrative Committee, and a final year on the Joint Committee.

If you’re interested in running for the committee, more information and biographical and petition forms are available at Join the SBNC.

Questions can be directed to Felicia Block via e-mail at f_liss@hotmail.com.
