Several issues have increased interest in local school board races. Make sure you know what the facts are.

In the 5 counties in the Northwest Corner of the state there is more than average interest in the School Board Races.

From Male/Female bathrooms to Sex Education to Critical Race Theory and the COVID pandemic schools are facing several challenges on keeping their focus on the traditional goals of Student learning and Teachers training to foster ALL students in their classrooms.

All of these issues have increased interest in local school board races in the Fourth Corner. Our first goal is to provide general information by County for races and any other pertinent information and then present the races that will be competitive in each district with a snippet quote from each candidate’s “Candidate Statement”.

We have found, for example, that many candidates are adding the word equity to their statements. These are the folks that often favor Equity over Equality. They may back some of what is commonly known as Critical Race Theory.

We have included information on Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) on Student head counts in the 2019 School Year and the 2021 Year so far to show some of the effect of the COVID year on public education. (NOTE: this is an “ongoing” head count by district and may change over time)
