The Toledo School Board is made up of five seats. Those elected to the seats serve four-year terms. Three of those seats are up for election in 2017, which means voters can vote for up to three candidates on the ballot. The remaining two seats are up for election in 2019. Their responsibilities include reviewing and approving the Toledo Public Schools system’s budget and reviewing and approving union contracts with the teachers.
Like all city-wide elected offices, the Toledo School Board race is non-partisan. This means that even though a candidate may be endorsed and supported by a political party, the party name will not be stated on the ballot.
