Kirkwood School District Board of Education Candidate Filing Opens on Dec. 5

Filing for the April 2, 2024, Kirkwood Board of Education election will open on Dec. 5, 2023. Two director positions on the Kirkwood School Board will be decided on the April 2 ballot. The two board members whose terms expire in 2024 are Jean Marie Andrews and Angie Bernardi.


Filing will be conducted through a cooperation agreement with the St. Louis County Election Board. This ensures consistent office hours during the full filing period, which concludes during the district’s annual winter break when all offices are closed. 

Candidates will file their declarations at the Election Board located at 725 Northwest Plaza Drive in St. Ann. No filing will take place at the district office. Candidates can file between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday from Dec. 5 through Dec. 26, 2023. No  fillings will occur on December 7th or  December 25th due to the Election Board office being closed.  


On the first day of filing, a lottery will be conducted to determine ballot placement. On the last day of candidate filing only, candidate filing ends at 5:00 p.m. The office may be closed due to inclement weather.


Candidates must be citizens of the United States, residents of the Kirkwood School

District for a minimum of one year, residents of Missouri for at least one year preceding

the election and at least 24 years of age. 


According to Missouri law, if the number of candidates who have filed for the office is equal to the number of positions in that office to be filled by the election, no election shall be held for such office and the candidate shall assume the responsibilities of their offices at the same time and in the same manner as if they had been elected.
