VALPARAISO | Hoping to rekindle interest in the petition drive to change the city's School Board to an elected body, organizers are taking the campaign to the Web.
VALPARAISO | If those seeking to change to an elected Valparaiso School Board hoped to do so by replacing either state Sen. Ed Charbonneau or state Rep. Ed Soliday, both Republicans, they were naive of the workings of the state legislature, Soliday said.
VALPARAISO | After taking a hiatus during the election, organizers of the petition drive to get an elected school board in Valparaiso will resume gathering signatures soon, spokesman Kevin Cornett said.
VALPARAISO | Kevin Cornett said he and others have just about collected the 3,200 signatures needed to advance their effort to transform the Valparaiso Community School Board from an appointed to an elected body.
Of the 293 school corporations in Indiana, 281 have elected school boards. Of the remaining 12 districts, Valparaiso Community Schools is the largest with an appointed board.
VALPARAISO | The group circulating petitions for an elected Valparaiso School Board now hopes to wrap up the campaign at the end of July, but who would run for the job if it was elected instead of appointed?
VALPARAISO | The group circulating petitions to change to an elected School Board for Valparaiso schools is taking the advice it has been giving the schools: It is seeking more public input.
VALPARAISO | Anyone interested in signing a petition supporting a switch to an elected School Board in Valparaiso or in helping with the petition drive can contact Kevin Cornett at firstname.lastname@example.org or (219) 548-8891.
VALPARAISO | Volunteers hope to gather enough signatures by mid-May to pursue a seven-member elected board for Valparaiso Community Schools.
VALPARAISO | Petitions will begin circulating Monday in an effort to eliminate the city's appointed school board in favor of an elected one, organizer Kevin Cornett said.
