However, the incumbent and one other candidate were the only two petitions that the School District received so no election was held on April 11, 2023. Dustin Ross will retain his position for the next two years and Samuel Whitney will take his position on the Edgemont School Board for the next 3 years. Their new term will begin on July 1,2023.
