In Pinellas County, four school board positions are up for grabs, with several strong candidates in the races. The seven-member School Board oversees a $1.66 billion budget and more than 100,000 students. School Board races are non-partisan. If a candidate doesn’t win more than 50% of the vote in a district, the top two voter getters move to the Nov. 8 general election. Districts 2 and 3 are countywide seats, while districts 6 and 7 are open to all registered voters in those communities. School Board members are paid $47,085 and are elected to four-year terms.
