Board Elections

Two Seats are up for election on the LTUSD School Board in November 2018 

The Lake Tahoe Unified School District is governed by five members of the Board of Education who serve staggered four-year terms. School board members are locally elected public officials entrusted with governing our community’s public schools.

On November 6, 2018, two seats on the Board of Education will be up for election. The Board uses a voting system of “Elections by Trustee Areas” which means that Board members have specific geographic trustee areas in which they must live and are elected only by the residents of that area.

The incumbents, whose terms expire this year, are as follows:

Trustee Area #5: Barbara Bannar, current Board President since December, 2014, and who has served since August, 2012; and  

Trustee Area #2: Angela Swanson, current Board Clerk, who has served since September, 2016.

Trustee Area Maps may be viewed here.
The filing period is July 16 – Aug. 10, 2018.

To be eligible for election, Board candidates must be 18 years of age or older; a citizen of the state; a resident of the school district; a registered voter; and not disqualified by the constitution or laws of the state from holding a civil office.

It is vitally important that voters pay attention to the citizens they select to oversee their schools — the governing board members to whom they entrust their children and their tax dollars. It is equally important that school board candidates understand the depth of commitment required to effectively fulfill the school board role
