Three Board Seats Up for Grabs; Petition Packets Available Now

UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 emergency, the elections have been postponed until at least June 1. Although a vote date has not yet been set, the current projected cutoff date for petitions to be submitted is Monday, May 11. More information will be shared as soon as we have details.

Voters have an opportunity to elect three people to the Rush-Henrietta Central School District Board of Education.

Robert Cook resigned his seat mid-year, so there are some changes to the traditional rules for board occupancy. The two candidates receiving the highest number of votes will be elected to serve three-year terms beginning July 1, 2020, and ending June 30, 2023. The next candidate receiving the highest number of votes will be elected to serve a term beginning upon the filing of the oath of office and ending June 30, 2021.

Petitions must be filed with the school district clerk prior to 5 p.m. Monday, May 11, at the Parker Administration Building, 2034 Lehigh Station Road, Henrietta. Please contact Karen Flanigan, school district clerk, at 359-5010 or for details.
