On November 4, Lakeville area voters will elect four School Board members to the Board of Education. Serving on the Board of Education is both a rewarding and complex position.

Up for election are the seats of Kathy Lewis, Robin Richards, Cinta Schmitz, and an additional 7th seat, which was approved by voters in November 2021. Elected board members will assume office in January 2023 and serve a four-year term.

Residents are invited to submit an affidavit of candidacy between August 2 and August 16 at 5:00 p.m. Candidates must be eligible voters, at least 21 years old when the term begins, and residents of Lakeville Area Schools within 30 days before the election. More information at
