About the event

This year’s school board election includes 20 candidates across 5 seats. The new board will come in as new Supt. Marie Feagins wraps up her first 100 days and embarks on effectuating a new strategic plan in September. Additionally, the body will have to navigate school closures nearly immediately, in an environment where inflationary pressures could stymie new projects. Persistent stagnation in academic performance, especially for elementary schoolers, will be a focus.

See our toolkit that includes Forum Information, Election Information, Voter Engagement Information School Board Candidate Information here.
