There are 4 Director School District Board seats that will be up for grabs in the November School Board election in the Montrose-Olathe School District.  School District election officials Laurie Laird says would-be candidates can pick up petitions at the School District Office and begin their quest to collect at least 50-signatures starting today in order for their name to appear on the November ballot.

Laird adds that there is the potential for a majority turnover in seats on the 7-member Board this election because one of the current members will be completing 8-years of service and is term limited out.
