Board of Education Candidacy Information


The River Vale School District has information available for citizens interested in running for the board of education.

“The River Vale Board of Education will have two (2) full term vacancies and one (1) unexpired vacancy in the 2019 Annual School Election”, Kelly Ippolito, School Business Administrator/Board Secretary, announced today.  A full term on the school board runs for three years, and the unexpired term runs for one year.

A candidate must file a Nominating Petition with the county clerk for their name to appear on the ballot during the Annual School Election scheduled for Tuesday, November 5, 2019. The deadline to submit the nominating petition is 4:00 p.m. Monday, July 29, 2019.

Candidate packets may be picked up at the River Vale Board of Education offices at 609 Westwood Avenue, River Vale, Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  Also, prospective school board candidates can download candidate information from the New Jersey School Boards Association’s web site at NJSBA School Board Candidate Kit. The School Board Candidate Kit includes information about nominating petitions, legal qualifications for school board candidacy, and the role of the school board member.  Information about the New Jersey School Ethics Act and important dates in the school election process are also included.

 “One of the most meaningful contributions that citizens can make to their community is serving on the local board of education,” said Daniel Sinclair, NJSBA president.  “I encourage all interested citizens to consider school board membership. It doesn’t require a degree in education, or a background in politics. However, it does require a sincere interest in the community, its children, and their education.”
