Four candidates have filed for three open positions on the Platte County R-3 School Board.

Chris Seufert has chosen not to seek reelection.
At North Platte, four candidates filed for three open spots. The candidates include current board members Bill Matney, George Hoeffner, and Michele Paden-Livengood, as well as new comer Bennett French.
