School Boards: they’re important

March 4th, 2011

Category: News

School board elections will be held on May 10th.  Do you know who is running in your district? If not, you will want to: school board members shape the education of our children by setting the policies of our public schools. 

School boards are responsible for hiring and evaluating superintendents; evaluating and adopting policies affecting schools in a district; monitoring and adjusting district finances; managing collective bargaining; and serving as a judicial body for unresolved conflicts.

Adding your voice to the discussion is simple—and important. Learn more about the candidates in your district (New Castle County, Kent County, Sussex County).
