School board elections don’t typically get much attention compared to topline elections. The races for president, US Senate, and even state Senate and state House typically get significantly more coverage.

But school board elections are still important. School board members set policies for the district, hire superintendents, and can add supplemental curriculum. For example, sex education isn’t mandatory in Arizona. If a school chooses to provide sex education, the lessons must be approved by the school board.

Pima County has 49 school board seats up for election this November. Some seats are for two-year terms and others are for four years.

Not sure what school district you’re in? Here’s a map from the Pima County School Superintendent’s Office. Everyone in the district votes for school board members, regardless of if they have children in public school or not.
