On Thursday, April 1, the DeKalb Public Library and the Election Group hosted a virtual public DeKalb School Board Candidates Q&A on Zoom and Facebook Live. This election is important to all students, teachers, and parents. The Q&A is a chance to hear the views of the five candidates running to fill three seats on the DeKalb School Board on April 6.
During the forum, candidates Amanda Harness, Jose Jaques, Anthony Martin, Ariel Owens, and Deyci Ramirez introduced themselves, and answered a series of questions that had been submitted ahead of time. The candidates also answered a selection of questions that had been typed into the Zoom chat function and Facebook comments section.
Due to technical difficulties, the first half hour of the forum was not recorded. However, you are still able to watch a full recording of the forum on the DeKalb Public Library Facebook page. The partial recording of the forum is available below.
