As we head into election season, a gentle reminder:
Candidate filings have not started yet for SBISD Trustee Elections - filing begins on January 19 and closes at 5 pm on February 18.
Please abstain from inviting a candidate or "potential" candidate to speak at your PTA meeting until all candidates have had a chance to file.
If you have one candidate come to speak at a PTA function/meeting, you must invite all candidates (this goes for any election - including State Board of Education, City Council, etc). They don’t all have to show up but all MUST be invited. A PTA cannot endorse a candidate.
As always, the Council will host a candidate forum before early voting begins in April.
Please reference (and bookmark) the Texas PTA Local Advocacy Toolkit. It provides resources for School Board Candidate Forums and more.
If you have specific questions, I am happy to help.
