There are three 3-year terms open on the nine-person board this year.  Currently Jodi Smith, Vivian; Jamie Griffith, Presho;  and Kenny Hamer, Kennebec hold the positions.

According to Lyman business manager Renelle Uthe, Adam Ehlers, Presho has returned a nominating petition, and several remain out.
If more than three petitions are returned by the deadline Friday there will be a school board election Tuesday, June 14 to elect three people to serve.
