The Boise School District will hold its standalone trustee election Tuesday.
Three candidates are running for two six-year board seats. Candidates don’t run for specific board spots. Instead, they run at large, and Tuesday’s two top-vote getters will be elected.
The candidates are Dennis Doan, a retired Boise fire chief, appointed to the board in 2018; Nancy Gregory, an 18-year trustee who has served as board chairperson for the past six years; and James Tooman, a parent who has served on Head Start’s policy council.
The district will operate eight regional voting centers Tuesday:
- East Junior High School, 5600 E. Warm Springs Ave.
- Fairmont Junior High School, 2121 N. Cole Road.
- Les Bois Junior High School, 4150 E. Grand Forest Drive.
- Riverglen Junior High School, 6801 N. Gary Lane.
- South Junior High School, 3101 W. Cassia St.
- West Junior High School, 8371 W. Salt Creek Court.
- Boise High School, 1010 W. Washington St.
- District Services Center, 8169 W. Victory Road.
Voters who have requested and received absentee ballots must return them to the District Services Center by 8 p.m. Tuesday.
Under state law, school districts hold trustee elections in November on odd-numbered years, alongside municipal elections. But under Boise’s unique governing charter, which predates statehood, the state’s second largest district can hold its elections in early September.
