Candidates must file a nominating petition with the local school board in order to get their name on the ballot for the upcoming election.

Not clear on whether incumbents are running.

I got the impression that the BOE was still uncertain about the election date, as there was some question about weather the town council was going to leave well enough alone and leave the election date as Tuesday, April 16, or move it to November. I would hope they leave as is. We don't need our BOE candidates running on political lines.
