Three candidates are vying for a seat on the Deer Creek School Board, while no one has challenged current Edmond School Board President Jamie Underwood.

Candidates must file their intent to run at the county election board office by 5 p.m. Wednesday to appear on the February ballot. The declaration must be notarized.

Requirements for school board members include living within the district they serve, living in the district for at least six months and being a registered voter within the district for six months.

Additionally, board members are required to have a high school diploma or the equivalent certificate.

Board members also cannot be currently employed by the school district governed by the board, or related to any of the other board members or any employee of the school district.
