Interested in Running for the APS Board of Education?
The Aurora Public Schools Board of Education will have three seats open this year. The board election will be held on November 1, 2011.
The APS Board of Education is a seven-member group elected to establish policies for the school district. Board members are elected at large and serve four-year terms. The board addresses the concerns of the local community while working within the framework of state and federal laws. This includes approving curricula and instructional materials and adopting the annual budget.
Board candidates run on a non-partisan basis and do not need to be educators.
A person who desires to be a candidate for school director shall file a written notice of intention to be a candidate and a nomination petition in accordance with law. These documents will be included in the candidate packets, which will be available beginning Wednesday, August 3, 2011. Packets may be obtained at the Office of Legal Counsel, 1085 Peoria Street, Aurora, Colorado, 80011 (303-344-8060 ext. 28009). Office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
