Indiana School Boards Assocation Candidate Forums

Indiana School Board Association (ISBA) is holding ten regional school board candidate forums. These forums are designed to inform new candidates and incumbents running for re-election about school boardsmanship. Some of the topics to be discussed include the roles and responsibilities of being a school board member, ethics, and legal responsibilities. There is time allotted for questions from the audience.

Indiana School Board Association (ISBA) encourages as many local candidates to attend so if you are running or know someone running for your local school board please forward this information to them.

Cost is $35 and each candidate will receive a school board candidate’s kit, which contains valuable information on the financial, legal, and ethical aspects of serving on a school board.
