To the editor:
As a member of your local board of education, I urge you to vote “yes” on April 5 to change the method of electing board members to the USD 398 Board of Education.
If approved by the voters, this change will become effective with the April 2013 school board election. The change will not affect the terms of any current board members and will only make it easier for qualified, interested patrons to seek board positions.
Serving on the local school board is a rewarding experience and I believe that the future of our schools, the future of our communities, and the future of our children depend on a quality school board.
Please join me in voting “yes” on this question.
