Board of Education Still Needs Candidates

JCPSAs of right now, there are three Jefferson County Board of Education seats that have no candidates running. The deadline to file is in less than two months, August 9th by 4:00 PM.

The three positions are: District 2, which includes parts of Newburg, Germantown and St. Matthews, and all of Crescent Hill and Highlands; District 4 which is a large portion of the southwestern part of the county; and District 7 which is a large part of the southeastern part of the county. The seats are currently held by David Jones, Jr., Chuck Haddaway, and Chris Brady respectively.

To run for the school board, a candidate must: be at least 24 years old, be a citizen of KY, be a voter within the district for the seat being sought, have a high school diploma or equivalent, may not hold a state office, not have a relative employed by the school district, and not involved directly or indirectly with sales with school funds. The term is 4 years if elected. School board members are not paid a salary, instead they receive $75 per meeting that is attended, up to $3,000 per year.

The filing fee is $20 and sample forms can be found on Secretary of State’s website. For more information on running, potential candidates should contact the County Clerk’s Office.
