SCHOOL BOARD CANDIDATES FORUM

Board

Who’s deciding the fate of our children?

This Nov. 4 Election, four JCPS School Board Positions are up for grabs. District 1 is unopposed. However, the other three, districts 3, 5 and 6, are highly contested.

The 15th District Parent Teacher Association is hosting a School Board Candidates’ Forum on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at the VanHoose Education Center, 3332 Newburg Road in Stuart Auditorium. It will be from 5:00 pm to 8:30 pm. The districts will be scheduled as follows:

District 6 – 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
District 5 – 6:10 pm – 7:10 pm
District 3 – 7:20 pm – 8:20 pm

The forum will be moderated by Devin Katayama, Education Reporter from WFPL Public Radio. The format will consist of a two-minute opening statement from each candidate, on why they have chosen to run for the school board, followed by questions submitted by the audience. Each candidate will have two minutes to answer these questions. If time permits, we will allow each candidate two minutes for a closing statement.

Candidates and their bios, as well as a district “finder” are available below.
