Candidates for the Rowland Unified School District Board of Education will participate tonight in a forum.
Rowland Heights Community Coordinating Council will devote the time for
its regular meeting to a Q and A session for the seven running for the
school board, according to a news release.
Seven candidates are vying for three seats on the board. The Rowland Unified School District serves a portion of Walnut.
"This will be an important election," the coordinating council wrote in its announcement of the forum.
three candidates you elect will oversee the expenditure of nearly $1
billion during their terms, and the quality of our schools are
determined by their decisions. Our children deserve the best possible
schools, and good schools are also important for all residents, even
those who don’t have children, because they are an important determinant
of property values."
The forum will start promptly at 7 p.m.
tonight at the Pathfinder Park Community Center, 18150 E. Pathfinder
Road in Rowland Heights.
Attendees are advised to get there early to get a seat, as organizers expect a full house.
