PROVIDENCE, RI – Mayor Jorge Elorza today announced that the Providence School Board Nominating Commission is seeking qualified applicants to serve on the Providence School Board.
“Being All In for education in Providence requires dedicated people committed to seeing our schools at their best,” said Mayor Jorge Elorza. “I encourage those interested in being a part of our school board and making a difference to apply today.”
The nine School Board members are each appointed to three-year terms. Terms are staggered

This year’s applicants are being considered for appointment to a term beginning in 2018 and ending in 2021. Additionally, one appointment will fill a vacancy.
The School Board application deadline is 4:00PM on December 8, 2017. The School Board job description and online application are available at: https://www.providenceri.gov/mayor/providence-school-board-application/.
The School Board Nominating Commission will conduct a public forum with selected applicants once the application period has closed. The Commission then makes recommendations to the Mayor. The Mayor’s school board nominees will then be reviewed by the City Council.
