Aurora voters have no shortage of options to fill three seats on the city’s school board. Seven candidates, including two incumbents, are in the running for the at-large seats. Those elected will face tough decisions right off the bat, including whether to free as many as five academically struggling schools from the district’s bureaucracy. Other challenges facing the inner suburban district: overcrowding, a growing at-risk student population and high teacher turnover.
To get a read on the where the candidates stand, Chalkbeat Colorado asked each of them to respond to questions about issues facing the district and the broader education community. You can read their responses here.
