The Norwich School Board has five board members. Four board members serve three-year terms and are voting members of the Dresden School Board and one board member serves a two-year term and is a non-voting member of the Dresden School Board. Norwich School Board meetings are held in the Marion Cross School Library in Norwich, VT on the first Wednesday of every month with a few exceptions. All meetings, except for Executive Session meetings, are open to the public. Videos of board meetings are available from CATV's Video on Demand.

Filing, Voting and Election Information

Absentee Ballot Procedure:
Voters who will be unable to vote on Election Day due to absence from town, religious commitments, or physical disability may vote by absentee ballot. Voters desiring to vote by absentee ballot need to submit a signed request form to obtain a ballot. Voters may request an absentee ballot from the Superintendent of Schools office, 41 Lebanon St, Suite 2, Hanover (603-643-6050) kateoconnor@sau70.org, or from the Norwich Town Clerk's office.

Forms may be returned by email to kateoconnor@sau70.org, mail, fax (603-643-3073), or in person. A separate request form is necessary for the Norwich and Dresden ballots. If the absentee voter does not elect to complete the ballot in the Superintendent/Town Clerk’s office, the ballot will be mailed to the absentee voter. In compliance with voting regulations, absentee voters will not be allowed to leave the office with a ballot.

If you are requesting a ballot for another person, you may pick up or request a form, take the form to the absentee voter, obtain that person's signature, and return the request form to the Superintendent/Town Clerk's office. The absentee ballot will then be mailed to the absentee voter.
