School Board Elections 2021
The Iowa Association of School Boards (IASB) and the North Polk Community School District (NPCSD) urges Iowans passionate about education to consider running in the November 2, 2021 school board elections. Public schools need strong leadership and governance to ensure a bright future for all children and communities across the state.
Strong leadership is critical to moving education forward in our district. School board members play significant roles in our community – they must have leadership, vision, and dedication. They are charged with accountability for student learning, determining educational goals, setting policy, overseeing school finances and more.
This year, NPCSD has three seats up for election on November 2, 2021. School board members are elected to serve four-year terms. As of September 21, 2021, 11 North Polk residents are running for School Board.
