Post date: Oct 5, 2015 2:45:40 PM

Impact on Education and the Boulder Valley School District Parent Council will hold a board of education candidate forum at 6:30 PM October 8th at the BVSD Education Center, 6500 Arapahoe Road in Boulder. The seven school board members represent geographic districts, but are elected by all the voters in the school district. Members serve four-year terms and are limited to a maximum of two terms.

The seven candidates vying for four seats of the board are:

District A - Shelly Benford and Denny McCloskey

District C - Chris Barge, Susan Fremmer, and Kathy Gebhardt

District D - Sam Fuqua

District G - Richard Garcia

The forum will be moderated by Fran Ryan, CEO of Impact on Education. Candidates will be given time to introduce themselves and explain why they want to serve on the board. Each candidate will answer two or three pre-selected questions and then attendees will have the chance to ask questions.
