  • Only one advisor per school may serve on the Board at the same time.
  • In order to run for a state office, a candidate school must file a form of intent to run for office (form is available on this page...see below) along with a letter of intent signed by the principal with the TASC Director, no later than 60 days prior to the opening date of the state conference. 
  • The deadline to file to run for state office and submit a general platform is stated on the TASC Event Planner found under the Resource tab.
