There will be three open seats in the next election for school board members and the first deadline for interested candidates is approaching August 9th. Serving on the school board provides an opportunity to give a lasting impact on the future of Mancos and the surrounding area. To run for one of the three open seats, you need to file a nomination petition signed by 25 eligible electors. Those become available August 9th and must be submitted by the 31st. To be eligible, you must be a resident of Montezuma County. The school board election takes place November 14th. You can contact the District if you are indeed interested in filling a nomination petition and learn more on the District's website at mancosre6.edu.
