With petition circulating behind them, school board candidates are turning their attention to campaigning and forums.

The candidate forum season kicks off in earnest next week in two of the state’s largest districts. There’s a Jeffco candidate forum at 6:30 p.m. Monday at Green Mountain High School, 13175 Green Mountain Drive in Lakewood.

On Tuesday, State for Children is hosting a “candidate conversation” for DPS board hopefuls, starting at 6 p.m. at STRIVE Prep’s Lalo Delgado Campus, 3201 W. Arizona Ave.

EdNews and A+ Denver are hosting a series of DPS candidate forums starting Sept. 18; get the details here. There’s also an extensive schedule of forums set in Jeffco; see the list here.
