5 questions with Anchorage School Board candidates
The Anchorage municipal election is April 5. It will be conducted by mail, and ballots have already been sent out. (More on how to vote here.)
Among what voters are weighing in on: filling two seats on the seven-member Anchorage School Board. School board members are elected to three-year terms in area-wide races, meaning all Anchorage voters weigh in on each seat.
To help sift through the candidates, the Anchorage Daily News sent them a list of survey questions. Here’s this year’s school board candidates’ answers to five of those questions, and for more visit adn.com.
1. What’s the single most important issue facing the Anchorage School District? How would you address it if elected?
2. Rate how the Anchorage School District has handled the pandemic, and why.
3. Many students are struggling due to pandemic-related challenges, both academically and behaviorally. What are some strategies the school district should prioritize to help students recover from that period?
4. Is the Anchorage School District doing a good job of retaining quality teachers?
5. If I could change one thing in the Anchorage School District, it would be _____. Explain.
