Pre-Boarding Meetings

  • Whether you are planning to run for a seat on the Clear Creek Amana Community School Board this November or considering doing so at some point in the future, becoming informed about the work of the board is important to best serve the students, staff and entire community.

    That is why the School Board and District are hosting “Pre-Boarding” meetings. These events are opportunities to share information on the work and responsibilities of a School Board, review major issues that come before the board, and answer questions about the work.

    WHO
    If you are planning to run or have an interest in being a candidate for the School Board, this opportunity is for you. Potential school board members will get insight and information into the role and responsibilities of the board.

    WHAT
    You will learn about the school board’s work on issues ranging from approving the budget to improving student achievement, and how that relates both to the roles of district teachers and staff as well as connects to our community.

    WHEN

    • Tuesday, August 24th, Oak Hill Elementary from 6-7:30 PM
    • Saturday, August 28, Clear Creek Elementary 10-11:30 AM
    • Sunday, August 29, North Bend Elementary 4-5:30 PM

    WHY

    With a School Board election coming up on November 2, 2021 we want to provide people considering a campaign for the School Board an opportunity to learn more about both the position and the school district.

    This is also an opportunity to receive candidate packets and any help to start a campaign for school board.
