But as Balukoff is stepping away from the board, other candidates have stepped into the race.
Incumbent Maria Greeley has filed paperwork to run for re-election, and fellow incumbent Troy Rohn told Idaho Education News that he plans to run again.
Another candidate has filed campaign paperwork: Alicia Shier Estey, senior associate vice president of campus operations and chief compliance officer at Boise State University.
“The Boise School District has a stellar reputation and legacy of excellence,” Estey said a news release announcing her candidacy. “I would be honored to serve our community, students, teachers and administrators to continue and build upon this legacy.”
Estey enters the race with backing from incumbent trustee Beth Oppenheimer, who is advising her campaign.
Boise trustee candidates must file campaign paperwork by 5 p.m. Friday.
Three races will be on the ballot, and all candidates run on a single ballot. In other words, the top three vote-getters will each be elected to six-year terms.
