The school board election is Nov. 8.

At stake are the three seats held by Bronfeld, Kanter and Kendal.

Bronfeld is running for her third term on the school board, and Kanter is seeking her second term. Kendal is seeking her third, non-consecutive term. She served from 2016-2018, and was elected to a second, non-consecutive term in 2019.

Candidates for school board must be at least 18 years old, able to read and write, and hold U.S. citizenship.
