School Board in Action

As the “watchdog” for our community, GSIW members are a presence at all board meetings. We post our meeting minutes to this site, along with speeches made during public comment. Join us at a meeting. Speak during public comment…make sure your voice is heard!

Wake County has a nine member School Board. Members are elected to a four-year term. Five members are elected in one cycle; two years later, the remaining four seats are up for election. In October, 2011, five members were elected to terms that run from December 2011 to November 2015. In October, 2013, four seats for a term running from December 2013 to November 2017 were on the ballot. With the passage of Senate Bill 325 (now Session Law 2013-110), the terms of all Board members, regardless of whether they were elected in 2011 or 2011, will expire in December 2016. Per the new legislation,

  • “Beginning in 2016, and quadrennially thereafter, seven members of the board shall be elected from numbered single-member districts to serve a term of four years. The qualified voters of each district shall elect a person who resides in that district for the seat apportioned to that district. Only the qualified voters of the district may vote in that election.”
  • “In 2016, two members shall be elected from lettered single-member districts to serve a term of two years. In 2018, and quadrennially thereafter, two members shall be elected from lettered single-member districts. The qualified voters of each district shall elect a person who resides in that district for the seat apportioned to that district. Only the qualified voters of the district may vote in that election.”
