If you’re like me, the 2nd Tuesday in May doesn’t immediately jump out to you as a critically important day.
But did you know every year that’s when Delaware’s school board elections take place?
School boards help decide how our public school budgets are set and decide key district rules and regulations.
On average only about 1% of eligible Delawareans vote in our school board elections. That means only about 400-500 people decide whowins an election.
That’s why we're excited to have Network Delaware take on a campaign to let the public know who’s running in our school board elections on May 14th and encourage more of us to vote.
If you’re wondering who’s running in your school district (or even another district), you can quickly pull up their brief bio and answers to questions such as “How would you ensure the district provides equitable access and meets the needs of all students?” or “What should your district do to hire and retain a diverse and highly qualified staff including teachers, administrators and support personnel?”
