In a national context of schools removing books and teachers being restricted—especially on topics of race and LGBTQ+ issues—ISD 197 will begin using a supplemental anti-bias curriculum to help kids from a range of identities feel welcomed and included.
We explore the campaign finance reports of the 2021 ISD 197 school board candidates.
In the ISD 197 election, the levy renewal passes with 68% of the vote and Sarah Larsen, Marcus Hill, and Jon Vaupel win seats on the school board. The margin of victory for third over fourth was half a percent, some 91 votes.
We ask school board candidates about the recent controversy over critical race theory and how the district has done with equity issues.
This fall’s election includes a levy renewal, so we ask the school board candidates if they support past and current levies.
The ISD 197 school board and levy election is on Tuesday, November 2. Here’s your voter’s guide with details about voting, candidates, forums, levy info, and more.
