Six seats on the Augsburg Fairview Academy School Board need to be filled in the school’s upcoming election of new Directors. These will be for two-year terms. Newly elected Directors will assume office on January 1, 2016, along with four Directors whose term runs for another year.

Open Seats: Two of the open seats are reserved for licensed teachers currently employed by AFA. The remaining four seats are reserved as follows:
