About the event
School boards govern the direction of the district. There are no distinct, education-specific qualifications or requirements for becoming a school board member. The talents and insights of parents committed to great outcomes for children are invaluable attributes when compared to those who run for school board seats to promote a political or ideological agenda in classrooms or to jump-start a political career. You don’t have to be a parent to run – you only need to be a concerned member of the community who understands that we all have an interest in a school system producing well-educated students who will be responsible, productive members of society.
If you’re reading this, it’s likely your school board members aren’t doing a very good job. If this is the case, then it is time to replace them; it is why we have elections, and the next one is your goal.
