Welcome to the Newark Trust for Education's Countdown to the 2018 School Board Election!!
Three seats on the Newark Public Schools Board of Education are open for election as the board moves beyond advisory capacity. Tuesday, April 17th marks the first election in over two decades in which candidates vie for a seat on a fully empowered Board of Education.
