Know Your Candidates! Attend a Board of Education Candidate Forum.

Did you know there are three open Board of Education seats on November’s ballot? There is still plenty of time to learn more about the nearly 20 candidates (including Alamo parent, Li Miao Lovett!) running to serve four-year terms beginning in 2019.

The Board of Education is responsible for establishing educational goals and standards; approving curriculum; setting the district budget, which is independent of the city's budget; confirming appointment of all personnel; and approving purchases of equipment, supplies, services, leases, renovation, construction, and union contracts. In order to manage the day-to-day administration of the district, the Board of Education appoints a superintendent of schools.
