In addition to voting on the proposed 2018-19 budget on May 15, Merrick School District residents will also elect three members to the district’s Board of Education. One candidate, who initially filed paperwork to run for the board, has withdrawn his petition. The district extends the deadline for community residents to file a nominating petition to run for the board. The deadline to file a petition is Tuesday, May 8, by 5 p.m. All paperwork is due to the Office of the District Clerk by this time at Norman J. Levy-Lakeside School.
If you are interested in filing a nominating petition or have any questions, please contact District Clerk Clarice Rebentisch at 992-7200.
Also, please note that the PTA Meet the Candidates Forum, originally scheduled for Monday, May 7, has been rescheduled as a result of the deadline extension. The forum will now take place on Monday, May 14 at Birch School, beginning at 7 p.m.
