How do we elect school board members?
Every two years, Durham citizens elect 3 or 4 members to the 7-member Durham Board of Education (School Board). School Board elections are nonpartisan, meaning none of the candidates run in association with a political party. The School Board has 7 members who each serve 4-year terms.
One school board member is an at-large member, meaning that they can live anywhere in Durham County. The remaining members are elected from Districts 1, 2, 3, & 4 and Consolidated Districts A & B and must reside in those districts. In 2020, Durham is electing at-large, District A, and District B school board members.
Durham Public School (DPS) is among the 10 largest school districts in NC. More information about DPS and its programs can be found on the DPS website, dpsnc.net, and on the following sites:
