As of today, residents who live in the Center Grove school district are the only voters who will make a decision about who should serve on their school board, picking three at-large members out of four candidates. But in Clark-Pleasant, Franklin and Edinburgh school districts, no one has filed to fill all the seats that are up for election this fall.
