NHBOE Candidates and Issues Survey
For the first time in New Haven, an election will be held for seats on the New Haven Board of Education, which oversees the public school system. The Board of Alders created two voting districts, each comprising exactly half the city's wards. One Board of Ed member will be elected from each districts. Because of the staggering of board member terms, in this year's election one member will be elected for a two-year term and the other for a four-year term. Beginning in 2017, both elected seats will have four-year terms.
