USD 234 NEWS RELEASE - May 6, 2021 The terms of three members of the USD 234 School Board will expire in January 2022. Individuals interested in becoming a candidate for the USD 234 School Board election are asked to contact the Bourbon County Clerk’s Office located in the Bourbon County Courthouse at 210 S. National in Fort Scott, Kansas, or by phone at 620-223-3800. Our board members are elected from certain areas of the district, and therefore they must live in the area of the district from which they are seeking office. The County Clerk can confirm which district you reside in. The deadline to file as a candidate is 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 1, 2021. School board members must be registered voters in the school district and cannot be an employee of the board on which they are a member. School board members serve staggered four-year terms, so the entire board is not up for election at the same time. The general election will be held on Tuesday, November 2, 2021. Newly elected board members take office the second Monday in January following the election. Additional information may be obtained by contact Gina Shelton, Board Clerk, at 620-223-0800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
