When:July 6, 2022,7:00 – 8:00 PM on Zoom School Board Members play a significant role in deciding how to best support our children and teachers. School Boards make policies that affect students, teachers, faculty, and the community at large. In addition, these positions often lay the ground work for candidates to run for higher office. This upcoming election highlights the importance of voting for those individuals who have the experience, qualifications and the values that reflect our own.
