SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Following the recent School Board Nominating Committee (SBNC) election, returning and new members have begun to identify potential candidates to serve on next school year’s Scarsdale Board of Education.
Over the next few weeks, members of the SBNC will recruit and vet candidates to fill three seats held by Leila Maude (current Board of Education president), William Natbony (current Board of Education vice president) and Suzanne Seiden.
Seiden is completing her second and final term at the end of this school year.
John Spiro is the SBNC chair and Jeannine Palermo is the SBNC vice chair.
At the end of the SBNC season, the voting members will nominate three individuals to the nonpartisan slate in the school board election held in May at the same time and place as the school budget vote.
