Humboldt County Board of Education


The Humboldt County Board of Education consists of five elected members. Each board member represents a trustee area that corresponds to a geographical region of the county. Trustees are elected only by voters residing within their respective trustee areas. After the decennial federal census, trustee areas may be reapportioned to assure that populations within the areas remain nearly equal.

Board members are elected in November of odd-numbered years. A term is 4 years. Should a vacancy occur on the board in mid term, the vacancy may be filled in one of two ways. The remaining board members may provisionally appoint someone to fill the seat until the next regularly scheduled governing board election, or the County Superintendent Schools may call a special election to fill the seat.

Any registered voter living within the area that he/she seeks to represent is eligible to be a member of the Humboldt County Board of Education except the County Superintendent of Schools, any member of his staff or any employee of a school district.
