BOARD OF EDUCATION APPLICANT QUESTIONNAIRE (Questionnaire To Be Included With Letter of Interest) Deadline: Friday, July 1, 2022, 3:00 p.m.

1. At times you may be caught between legitimately opposing points of view. There may be a difference between your personal point of view and the policy or law that you’re required to uphold as a trustee. How will you handle this?

2. Identify a recent board decision that you felt strongly about and describe how you would balance community concerns, student needs, state and federal law, staff considerations and your personal value and beliefs to determine how to vote on the issue.

3. An average month for a school board member includes about five scheduled meetings and perhaps another five school or community related activities. In addition, there’s daily email correspondence, required reading and district updates. How will you fit this into your schedule?

4. What would you like to see changed in the district and how do you envision your role in that change?

5. If appointed to the board, would you seek re-election when the appointment expires?
