Board of Education 2019
Our voters’ guide questionnaire and letter of invitation to the Candidates’ Night, sponsored by LWV Teaneck, was mailed to each of the candidates for Teaneck Board of Education at the end of August. In addition to asking them about their Teaneck residency, occupation, education, family & community involvement, we asked each candidate to answer the following questions and to limit answers to a total of 500 words or less:
- How can the district enhance academic rigor? (List specific recommendations)
- What do you see as benefits and/ or challenges of offering Pre-K?
- What impact do you anticipate the influx of new apartment development will have on the Teaneck public schools and how should the district plan for this?
- Given the budgetary constraints under which the district operates, what areas would you focus on to achieve cost savings without adversely impacting instructional goals.
The candidates’ responses follow unedited, and are in the order received:
