Candidate Filing Now Open for 2019 Hazelwood School District Board of Education Election

Hazelwood School District residents interested in filing candidacy for the school board election on April 2, 2019, may do so now until Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019 at 5 p.m. at the District Administration Building, 15955 New Halls Ferry Road, Florissant, MO 63031. Filing guidelines and candidate informational packets will be available.

Two positions will be on the ballot this year as the three-year term of board member Cheryl Latham, and the remaining term for Dr. Zella Williams, who was appointed last year after the resignation of Karlton Thornton, will expire in April 2019.

Missouri law requires a person to be a U.S. citizen, at least 24 years old, a resident taxpayer of the Hazelwood School District, and have resided in the state of Missouri for one year immediately preceding the election. Board members serve three-year terms and are not paid for their service.

The Hazelwood School District will be closed for winter break beginning at 3 p.m. on Dec. 21, 2018 through Jan. 4, 2019.

The Hazelwood PTA Council will host a “Meet the Candidate Night” on Thursday, March 7, 2019, from 6 to 8 p.m., at the Administration Building for an opportunity to meet and hear from school board candidates in a panel-style discussion.
