Montgomery School Board Election
The Montgomery School District Board of Education, which includes Rocky Hill Borough, is made up of nine seats. Elected members serve three-year terms. Each January, the board elects a new board president and vice president.
As described by the board of education website, "the board’s responsibilities include: setting and evaluating policy; establishing goals; overseeing that the district schools are well run by the administrators they have hired; and adopting a fiscally sound operating budget for the school district. Board members act on the superintendent’s recommendations, meet with civic groups, and receive input from parents, students, and community members."
Eight candidates will appear on the November 3 ballot. Seven are running for three three-year terms. One is running unopposed for the one unexpired one-year term left open by Minkyo Chenette in January.
An additional seat is available — an unexpired 17-month term left open by Tonkin on August 10. (It was too late to include this seat on the November 3 ballot, so the school board will appoint a community member of their choice. Learn how to apply for this seat.)
Candidates are listed below in alphabetical order.
