The 2013 School Board Election

Once again in July there will be an open position on the Delmar School Board.  The election will be on May 14th for this position.  Anyone who may be interested must file with the Sussex County Election Board by March 1st.

"A qualified person seeking to become a candidate for the Board of Education for a Public

School District shall submit a Candidate Filing Form to the Department of Elections for Sussex

County no later than 4:30 p.m. local time on Friday, March 1, 2013, for Sussex County School

The Forms are located at the below website
Currently no one has filed for the Open Delmar School Board position.
I went to the Delmar School District website thinking there would be something about the election but was unable to find anything.  Without a doubt the Town of Delmar and The Delmar School Board seems to make voting and running for an elected office as difficult as possible.  Maybe they don't teach Civics anymore but I would think with their constant push for community service they would stress running for an elected office because I can't think of anything that is more community service.  No doubt they want to keep the  semper eadem, "always the same" status quo. 
For what I can determine the general requirements to file for the school board position are;
In accordance with Title 14, Delaware Code, the following are the basic legal requirements for running for a school board:

1)U.S. Citizen; 2)Resident of the State; 3)Resident of the School District; 4)At least 18 years of Age and 5) No felony convictions
