Four seats are open on the Oswego School District 308 Board of Education. Seven candidates are seeking the office for the state’s seventh largest school district that has been beset with financial struggles and budget cuts over five years.
There are several dynamics in the election, ranging from candidates with teaching experience, college degrees, and ethnic backgrounds. Only one male candidate is on the ballot, which means the district board could be all female led.
Recently, the Oswego Education Association held their school board candidate forum by recording individual videos. You can view the videos on the front page of the Oswego School District 308 website. Here are parts of that OEA video forum.
