According to a news release from the St. Joseph School District, candidates looking to run for one of two available seats on next year’s Board of Education must file for office between Dec. 7 and Dec. 28. Election day is April 5, 2022. It’s a tighter filing window than in previous years with just 13 days to file for candidacy.

School Board Filing will occur on the following dates:

The two seats up for grabs currently belong to Board President Tami Pasley and Board Vice President Dr. Bryan Green. The two positions are for three-year terms.

Filing will not occur on days when the District Administration offices are closed due to holidays, inclement weather, or in the event of closure due to COVID, according to the release.

It was a pleasant start to the weekend with sunny skies and temperatures reaching the mid 60s. A cold front moving through the area will bring us down into the 30s for lows overnight with gusty winds up to 20 mph. This will keep our highs in the 50s on Sunday under mostly sunny skies with mild winds from the southwest. Temperatures will quickly start to warm up again on Monday with highs in the mid 60s. Rain chances look to stay minimal into next week. Temperatures are forecasted to stay above average for the first day of December on Wednesday.
