Prospective Board Member Orientation
Wednesday, December 5 and 12 Education and Community Center (8255 W. Forest Hill Ave.) 7:00 P.M.
Do you have sound judgment, willingness to collaborate and a sincere interest in our school district? Then you should join us at the Education and Community Center on Wednesday, December 5 or 12 to find out more about becoming a School Board Member.
This is an open forum that will allow interested parties to find out more about becoming a School Board Member. Staff and current School Board Members will be available to answer questions regarding responsibilities, requirements, benefits and more. There will be two seats open for the April election and we are looking for the right candidates to fill them.
Please contact Tanya Ruder with any questions at 414-525-7607 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I just want to remind “prospective board members,” that you have absolutely no obligation whatsoever to attend these orientation meetings.
I’m sure the current staff and School Board members would love to meet potential candidates ahead of time, feel them out, uncover their agendas, and try to take them under their wings.
You are obligated to gather signatures on nomination papers, work hard, run a good campaign, and if elected, then work with your colleagues on the Board.
You do not……repeat….do not have to attend any orientation meeting where the current school “machine” can learn who’s running and why.
Also, what the hell does the final sentence in Ruder’s e-mail mean?
“There will be two seats open for the April election and we are looking for the right candidates to fill them.”
Earth to “Communications Specialist” Ruder:
It is not the school district’s job to determine the “right” candidates to sit on the School Board. That’s the job of the voters, the taxpayers, the people you work for, Tanya.
