By Abbey Smith

All the incumbents running in school board primary elections in California and Kansas on March 3, 2015, either advanced to the general election or won re-election to their seats outright. In the Los Angeles Unified Board of Education election, incumbents Tamar Galatzan, Bennett Kayser and Richard A. Vladovic from Districts 3, 5 and 7, respectively, won a spot in the general election on May 19, 2015. Challengers Scott Mark Schmerelson, Ref Rodriguez and Lydia Gutierrez also advanced to the general election. District 1 incumbent George J. McKenna III ran unopposed in the primary and won re-election to his seat.[1]

In Kansas, an incumbent and a former officeholder will be advancing to the Lawrence Public Schools general election on April 7, 2015. Incumbent Marcel Harmon and Mary Loveland, who has held a seat on the board twice before, defeated Kelly Spurgeon and Norine Spears in the race for the two-year term.[2]

No incumbents ran in the primary election for the at-large Position 7 seat on the Olathe Public Schools Board of Education. Candidates Joe Beveridge and Robyn Essex defeated Scott Enge and Elizabeth Howerton to move on to the general election on April 7, 2015.[3]

All three districts with seats up for primary election on March 3, 2015, could see changes to their future elections. A ballot measure to line up school board elections with state elections in even-numbered years was approved by Los Angeles voters in this primary election. Rather than being up for re-election in the spring of 2019, the winners of the general election for the Los Angeles Unified Board of Education will now be up for re-election in the fall of 2020.[1][4][5]

In Kansas, Senate Bill 171 was introduced to the Ethics, Elections and Local Government Committee in February 2015. If passed, the bill would move school board elections in the state to be held in November of even-numbered years. The bill would also require school board candidates to declare party affiliations.[6]
