Incumbent Peggy Kuzmanovich had 470 votes and incumbent Nancy Schell had 446 votes.

Jan Hope and James Creighton Mitchell Jr. ran as write-in candidates. Their vote totals were not available Tuesday.

The district's deficit, communication and safety were among the candidates' top issues.

Last year, declining enrollment and state aid caused financial troubles for the district, which meant teachers and other support staff members had to be laid off. Superintendent John Van Pelt said at the time the district needed to slash about $1 million in salaries and an additional $400,000 in operational expenses over the next two years.
