While all parents are welcome to submit their names for candidacy, the Board is particularly interested in candidates with school education or marketing backgrounds.  
If you have interest, please submit a brief letter of intent and resume by  March 31.  The letter of intent should describe your background and outline what you believe you can offer the school through Board service. The letter may be sent to Janelle Herrera at [email protected].
