Current Bill Summary

SB 234 - Under current law, elections for school board members are held on either the general municipal election day or such day as is specified in the county charter. Furthermore such offices are for terms ranging from three years to six years, depending on the district. This act requires such elections to be held at the November general election and makes all such terms four years.

The act additionally allows any candidate for school board to file for and hold any other office for which he or she is qualified, notwithstanding prohibitions in current law prohibiting persons from filing as a candidate for multiple offices.

This act has a delayed effective date of January 1, 2024.

This act is similar to provisions in SB 740 (2022).
