Learn More About Becoming An Urbandale CSD School Board Candidate: Nomination Papers Due Sept 19

Every two years we hold School Board elections and this year the Urbandale CSD will have four open seats on the ballot. All four seats are four-year terms. School Board volunteers are highly valued leaders in our district as they are elected to represent what is best for students and families.
