About the Board of Trustees

Barton Community College is governed by a six-member board of trustees elected from Barton County and coordinated by the Kansas Board of Regents. Three positions on the board come up for election every two years (odd-numbered years; i.e. 2009). The terms are four years. You must be a resident of Barton County to be a trustee. You may file for a trustee position by appearing in person at the Barton County Clerk’s office by the deadline established by that office and paying the required filing fee of $5. Your name will be placed on the ballot for the November election of that year. Newly elected trustees take office the following January.
