Virtual D204 Candidates Forum Hosted By MV & WV Government Clubs Thu, 2/11
With 11 candidates vying for just four available seats in the April 6 election, the race for Indian Prairie School Board is one of the most competitive in the suburbs this Spring. Civically-engaged and active student leaders from Metea Valley and Waubonsie Valley High Schools are doing their part to increase awareness of the candidates and their stands on educational issues by hosting one of the first Virtual Candidates Forums in the area, this Thursday, Feb. 11 from 6-7:30 PM.
All 11 D204 candidates have committed to take part in the forum. They will be asked both individual questions and those directed to the whole group.
Students from the Citizens of Metea Valley (Aurora), and Waubonsie Valley (Aurora) Youth & Government clubs have invited the candidates and their classmates, written the questions and will run the virtual forum on Thursday.
The District 204 government curriculum is centered around student engagement in action, civics through elections, community problem solving and policy-making programs. With a D204 “Portrait of a Graduate” Core Competency of “Citizenship,” these Metea and Waubonsie Valley student leaders are putting their civics lessons to work, helping to create better educated voters in their school district.
In the past, District 204 students have hosted campaign and candidate forums that have attracted national, state and local candidates. In 2016, and again in 2020, students from the district traveled to witness and work at the Iowa Presidential Caucuses.
