Notices of Intent

To become a candidate for the ASD20 BOE, individuals completed a “Notice of Intent.” Starting on August 9, 2023, prospective candidates could pick up a petition from the Education and Administration Center (EAC) to start the process. Each prospective candidate had to collect a minimum of 50 signatures from registered voters who live in the Academy District 20 boundaries. Most people collect much more than 50, because all signatures are verified by the district’s Designated Election Official (DEO) to confirm the signer is a registered voter and lives in the district boundaries. Any signatures that could not be verified were invalidated.
