Five candidates are vying for four Ames School Board seats:


  • Board President Luke Deardorff
  • Director Rodney Briggs

New candidates

  • Nathan Buss
  • Alisa Frandsen
  • Lewis Rosser

 Here are some reasons your vote matters:

  • Your vote counts directly toward the School Election outcome.
  • Voter turnout is critical to ensure balanced representation for the entire community.
  • A portion of your property taxes goes to school funding, so even if you don’t have students in the district, you have a stake in the School Board’s decisions. Student success has a large impact on the current and future quality of life in your community.
  • The School Board assures the Ames Community School District is in compliance with matters required by law, and hires, supervises and evaluates the Superintendent. The Board is responsible for high-level planning, policy-making and systemic evaluation of the district.
