With the Baltimore County school board facing a nearly complete makeover this fall, the Nov. 8 elections will go a long way toward determining whether the board continues on its current course or makes a sharp turn to the right. There are four contested races on the fall ballot, while three candidates are running unopposed. Meanwhile, the terms of four appointed members on the 11-member board are expiring later this year; their replacements will be appointed by the next governor, likely in January. The four contested races are playing out similarly to school board races across the country.
