School Board Elections Are Right Around the Corner!
On November 7, three Douglas County School District board seats will be up for election. We’re presenting an opportunity for you to get to know the candidates that will interest the FAIR Douglas County community.
DCSD School Board Candidate Interviews
FAIR Douglas County recorded one-on-one, long-form interviews with candidates. We invited candidates to discuss their priorities for DCSD and issues related to civil rights, discrimination, intolerance, racism, and our common humanity.
All seven candidates were invited, three candidates accepted. We’re very grateful to the three who spoke with us, and we’re hopeful that in the next election all candidates will speak with FAIR.
Watch the interviews on YouTube:
- Andy Jones discusses his perspective on how victim mentality and national trends such as the anti-racism movement have distracted focus away from academic excellence.
- Jason Page shares his opinion on the importance of viewpoint diversity and the role of parents in education.
- Maria Sumnicht speaks about writing effective policies, her views on DCSD’s Educational Equity policy, and how she would write a sound equity policy.
