Be educated!  The Palo Alto PTA Council and League of Women Voters have organized an opportunity for you to meet the Palo Alto Unified School District Board of Education candidates on September 22nd, 2016 in the school district offices at 25 Churchill Ave, Palo Alto. It will begin promptly at 7.00 pm and close by 9.00 pm. The Board of Education is the K-12 policy-making body for academic standards, curriculum, instructional materials, assessments and accountability.

Thank you to the League of Women Voters of Palo Alto for sponsoring this forum that encourages informed and active participation in government. The League and PTAC neither supports nor opposes candidates. The Candidates Forum is organized to provide equal and non-preferential opportunities for each candidate for Palo Alto Unified School Board to make short prepared statements and to answer questions written by audience members on cards provided at the event. Volunteers make the event run smoothly.

The entire Forum will be videotaped by Midpeninsula studios and broadcast later on community TV channels. All other recordings, visual and audio, are prohibited
