Call for Candidates for APS Board of Education Election

Although the Aurora Public Schools Board of Education election is not until November 4, potential candidates must begin the nomination process in August.

Beginning August 6, candidate packets will be available at the Aurora Public Schools Administration Building, 1085 Peoria Street, in Aurora, in the Office of the Superintendent. The packets include a notice of intention to become a candidate and a nomination petition. Office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Completed petitions must be submitted by the close of business on August 29.

A Candidate Forum is scheduled for 7 p.m. on August 12 in the Board of Education room at the Aurora Public Schools Administration Building, 1085 Peoria Street. The forum will provide an opportunity for citizens to meet current board members, ask questions about the election process, and learn more about school board member responsibilities.

To be qualified, a candidate must have been a registered elector and a resident of the Aurora Public Schools district for at least 12 consecutive months before the election. A person is ineligible to run for the Board if he or she has been convicted of committing a sexual offense against a child.

On November 4, three directors will be elected at-large to the seven-member board, each to serve a four-year term.

  • Board Member Debbie Barton is up for re-election. She has completed one term on the Board, which began in 1999.
  • The seat held by Board Member Marc Huebl is up for election. Huebl was appointed to the Board in June following former Board Member Larry Yates’ resignation. Huebl’s appointment ends in November.
  • Board Member Patricia Lord’s seat is up for election. Lord has served on the Board since 1983 and cannot run in November due to term limits.

If you need additional information, please call 303-344-8060, ext. 28004.
