Being educated about school board candidates is critical to advocating effectively for our students. PTA members are often the individuals with the most knowledge and awareness of their communities’ needs. It is important for PTAs to be involved in the process of educating communities and spreading awareness when it comes to school board elections. Although PTA units may not endorse the candidate(s),
• Alert community members to the coming election (or appointment) of school board members. Encourage them to be informed and to vote.
• Sponsor community meetings where all school board candidates are invited to speak. This may be done in cooperation with other nonpartisan organizations.
