School Board Vacancy Announcement


The Board of Education of the Wilson School District is seeking candidates to fill a vacant School Board seat through June 30, 2023.  If you are a District resident interested in public education, the School Board invites you to submit a letter to be considered for appointment to the seven-member Board. The deadline is Friday, August 12, 2022. 

Board members serve without pay and attend regular Board Meetings, Work Sessions, as well as special meetings. They also are liaisons to various school and community committees. Their duties are diverse, ranging from developing and adopting the annual budget to approving policy. They also have opportunities to interact directly with students, staff, parents, and community members by visiting the schools and participating in activities.

To be considered for the Board, you must be a U.S. citizen, age 18 or older, able to read and write, and a legal resident of the district for at least one year. A Board member cannot be an employee of the District or simultaneously hold another incompatible public office and cannot live in the same household with a family member who is also on the Board. 

The deadline for submission of letters of interest is Friday, August 12, 2022.  The appointment will take place after all interested persons are interviewed.  The position will be listed on the ballot at the Annual Vote and Election in May 2023, along with the two other board seats up for a three-year term. 

District residents who are interested in filling this position may either email or mail a letter of application to:
