School board filings ensure competitive regional races
With less than a week before the close of filing, most Southeast Missouri school districts have plenty of candidates signed up for board of education races.
With the exception of Cape Girardeau School District, where there is an additional one-year term opening, all local boards have three terms of three years each up for election.
Only Kelso, Delta, Nell Holcomb and Chaffee school districts were lacking enough candidates to fill vacancies as of Wednesday. If not enough candidates file to fill vacancies after the election, Missouri law allows the school board to appoint someone to a board position.
Filing will end at 5 p.m. Tuesday, and the election will be April 5.
