The Board of Education of the Mineral Point Unified School District is searching for its next member due to the passing of Mr. Larry Steffes.

Steffes took office in April 2010.

Any qualified elector of the District who is interested in filling the vacancy may submit a letter of application (addressing qualifications and interest) to the office of the District Administrator by Tuesday, November 9 at Noon.

The Board plans to consider potential appointees at a special meeting Monday, November 15 at 6:30 pm.

On or before this date, each potential appointee shall also submit a sworn declaration of eligibility to hold the vacant board seat. This can be done in the District Office at 705 Ross Street.

The individual appointed will fill out the remainder of Mr. Steffes’ term, which is set to expire April 2022. The individual would need to declare non-candidacy in late December if they are not interested in running for election. If interested in being elected, the individual would need to file candidacy in early January.
