Want to know more about the people running for school board?

May 07 2018

The Lexington County Commission of Registration and Elections let us know that seven Lexington County School District One residents are running for an unexpired seat on the Board of Trustees.

          Rutu Bhonslé  
          Jada Garris
          Kyle Guyton
          Jim Harpe
          Brent Powers 
          Michael Sturkie
          Dino Teppara

Staff, parents and community members reached out to us in search of information about each of the candidates. As a result, we created a survey with 12 questions and invited each candidate to enter their information and to send us a photograph — which we will publish here on our website.

Here is a timeline of this special election process.

In addition, School Improvement Councils in each attendance area will host candidate forums. Any Lexington County School District One resident can attend any of the scheduled forums. We currently have the following dates and locations:

     Wednesday, May 9, 2018, 6 p.m. SIC Board Candidate Forum at Lexington High School
