If you’re passionate about the type and quality of education that children in your community are receiving, then you should run for school board!
We believe that many people who could help restore our schools don’t know enough to even start to take action. This page is intended to provide those future leaders with a wide variety of information that can help them make a difference.
All we ask is that visitors to this page help us by letting us know what is helpful and what could be added to increase the value of this page.
