Editor’s note: This announcement was provided by the Citizens Nominating Committee.

Pelham’s Citizens Nominating Committee is currently seeking motivated, dedicated community members who are interested in running for a term on our Board of Education. The Pelham Board of Education will have 3 seats up for election in the upcoming School Board Election/Vote on May 21st, 2019.

Our schools are a huge point of pride for Pelham and we are grateful to have such an engaged, supportive, and resourceful BOE – perhaps YOU are the next member of this impressive team! To learn more about what is involved, please check out “Running for the School Board: What all Prospective School Board Members Should Know” on the New York State School Board Association (NYSSBA) website at tinyurl.com/runningforschoolboard, or attend an upcoming workshop for Prospective School Board Members on April 11th, 2019see pdf attached for more details.

If you are interested in serving/running for the school Board for the 2019 School Board Elections Cycle, here are some helpful & important dates to consider:

April 7th at Noon:                 CNC Applications due to CNC

April 8-11th:                          CNC Interviews

April 22nd:                              Petition must be filed with Pelham School District Clerk’s Office (please note, this is a tentative date as posted by the NYS Board Association, and the Pelham BOE/Central Office will be announcing by the next board meeting on March 26th when petitions will be available and are officially due).

May 7th:                 Last day to register to vote for Pelham School Budget & Elections

May 21st:                                Budget Vote & Election Day

If you’re interested, please contact Maurice Owen-Michaane at mmichaane@gmail.com with questions (or any of the CNC members listed below) and we can send you the 2019 CNC application. Reaching out to the CNC does NOT automatically commit you to run! The review by the CNC do not constitute an endorsement of any candidate or candidates who are seeking a term on the BOE, rather it is the review by a committee of your fellow neighbors. The qualifications that the CNC considers in a candidate for BOE include: 1) Knowledge of current local community issues as they affect the Pelham public education system; 2) General interest in education and a belief in the public school system & 3) Ability and willingness to execute faithfully the duties of a member of the Board of Education.

We are thankful for the enthusiasm our community has for educating our children! Thank you in advance for your interest!

Respectfully Submitted by,

Maurice Owen-Michaane, 2019 Chair
