Election of Board of Education Members

The Berlin Board of Education is a nine member, non-partisan Board. Board members serve three-year terms, with three members up for election each year.

In order for an individual to be placed on the November ballot, he/she must obtain a petition form from the town clerk and obtain the signature of 1% of the registered voters in Berlin. Upon the certification of candidate's signatures by the town clerk, the individual's name will go on the ballot with no party designation. The top three vote-getters fill the three vacancies of the Board.

Reference: Town of Berlin Charter, Section 2-6

Board Member Qualifications

Individuals must be registered voters in Berlin in order to serve on the Board of Education. Employees of the Board of Education may not serve on the Board.

Beyond the minimum statutory requirements for Board service, it is expected that Board of Education members will share a commitment to providing an exceptional educational experience for each student, a willingness to work and study to become well-versed in public education and Berlin schools, and a sincere desire to be part of a high-functioning governing body that takes responsibilities of public service seriously.
