The three candidates running for a seat on the Scottsdale Unified School District Governing Board will be participating in a public forum Monday, Oct. 3.
The public forum will be at 6 p.m. in the Kiva at City Hall, 3939 N. Drinkwater Blvd. It will be broadcast live on the city of Scottsdale channel 11, and re-runs of the forum will subsequently run every Monday for the remainder of October. Scottsdale Independent reporter Melissa Fittro will be moderating the forum.
The candidates running on the Nov. 8 ballot are incumbent Barbara Perleberg and newcomers Allyson Beckham and Sandy Kravetz.
Scottsdale Schools includes 30 schools serving about 24,500 students, according to the district’s website. More than 3,000 people are employed by the district, including about 1,550 teachers.
The district’s boundaries include most, but not all of, the city of Scottsdale, Town of Paradise Valley and sections of the cities of Phoenix and Tempe.
Additionally, Scottsdale Schools voters will also be deciding upon a $229 million bond initiative and an $8.5 million capital override at the November general election.
The Scottsdale Independent is available for free every Wednesday.
