The Non-Partisan System and the School Board Nominating Committee(SBNC)

Scarsdale traditionally has had two nonpartisan systems, one to nominate the Village Trustees, Mayor and Village Justice, the other to nominate School Board members.

In the School Board election system, the School Board Nominating Committee (SBNC) is a committee of citizens elected from across the Village for the purpose of nominating candidates to fill vacancies on the Scarsdale Board of Education. 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, and two additional years on the Administrative Committee.

For more information regarding the non-partisan system, please visit the website for the League of Women Voters of Scarsdale.

The Resolution of SBNC

Since 1965 , the procedure for electing citizens to serve on this nominating committee, called the School Board Nominating Committee (SBNC), as well as the process by which the SBNC nominates candidates to the School Board, is governed by a Resolution adopted by the voters of the Scarsdale school district in 1965 and amended from time to time since then (the Resolution).

The Resolution was last amended on January 14, 2020. 

This website provides a description of the SBNC election and nominating processes. It also provides a description of the Administrative committee established by the Resolution, which runs the election for citizens to become members of the SBNC and also recommends changes to the Resolution for approval by the voters.
