"On Monday, I will be withdrawing my nomination papers for the 3-year seat," Connolly told Framingham Patch Friday night.
"I've decided to run for the 1-year seat," she said. The 1-year School Committee seat became open in December when Rick Finlay resigned.
"I have the utmost respect for Beverly (Hugo) and Andy (Limeri). They are prepared and know their information. I may not always agree with their decisions, but I know we are all trying to achieve the same thing - the best education for every and all students in Framingham," said Connolly.
Hugo and Limeri will now be running unopposed for the two 3-year seats on the School Committee.
Connolly, however, will be involved in a race for School Committee.
Connolly and Don Taggart are both running for the one-year seat.
Taggart has not returned a couple of calls to Framingham Patch.
If Connolly had not withdrawn from one of the two School Committee races by Feb. 2 at 5 p.m., she would have been pulled from the ballot. Massachusetts Law prohibits a candidate to run for two seats on the same board.
Connolly had pulled nomination papers for the 3-year seat in November, before Finlay resigned.Then, she pulled papers for the one-year seat.
