• The individual must have resided within the school district for at least six months preceding the first day of the filing period.
• If the school district is divided into election districts, the required six months’ residency and voter registration must be within the election district of the board seat that is up for election.
• The individual cannot have been convicted of, or have pled guilty or no contest to, a felony under state or federal law or a misdemeanor involving embezzlement. Any person having a record of any of these crimes is ineligible to file for the school board position pending appeal or for a period of 15 years following completion of the sentence.
• The individual must hold a high school diploma or certificate of high school equivalency in order to be a candidate for service on a board of education.

An exception applies to members of boards of education who were serving on September 1, 1995, and are related to another board member or a school employee by affinity (excepting spouse). These members are not prohibited from serving the term for which they were elected or from serving successive terms for which they may be elected. [70 O.S. §5-113, S.L.O. §60].
• Board members must continue to meet the requirements for their school board position, or their seats shall be declared vacant.
