Current Newton Community School District School Board President Andy Elbert has filed papers to seek re-election to a four-year term on the board.
And early this afternoon, former School Board member Joe Klingensmith filed nomination papers to seek election to the board.
Elbert and Klingensmith join current School Board member Sheri Benson as the only three individuals seeking to run in the September school board election with the deadline for filing looming Thursday. Benson unseated Klingensmith from his seat in a special school board election last December.
There are four open seats in the Sept. 10 election. Seats held by incumbents Dennis Combs and Don Poynter are also up for election.
The deadline for filing with the School Board secretary is 5 p.m. Thursday.
