There appears to be a new trend in non-partisan school board elections nationwide, electing candidates were either endorsed by Democrats or not endorsed by either political party.

"As the country’s schools and the boards that govern them find themselves at the center of acrimonious political battles, Tuesday’s elections demonstrated a backlash to school boards that had flipped to conservative control in recent years. With both parties now paying more attention to school board races, the Nov. 7 elections kicked off a new era in a political battle over K-12 schools." - Education Week, Nov, 2023
