The Seattle School Board’s elections will include two crowded races filled with newcomers and one race where current School Board Member Betty Patu faces two challengers.

Nine people have filed to run for District 4, currently held by Sue Peters, and six have filed to run for District 5, represented by Stephan Blanford. Both decided against running for re-election.

If the two challengers don’t unseat Patu, she will return to the seven-member board in her third term and as its longest-serving member. The other four members were all elected in November 2015.

Seattle School Board candidates run only in their districts in the August primary. The two with the most votes move on to the November election, where they run citywide.

District 4: Eden Mack, Sean Champagne, Herbert J. Camet Jr., Jeff Jones, Megan Locatelli Hyska, Jennifer Crow, Darrell Toland, Lisa Melenyzer, Anh M. Nguyen
