Topics will include: how to file and circulate nominating petitions; timelines, the amount of time involved in serving on a school board, “good boardsmanship,” board-superintendent relationships, and partnership with the Lincoln Intermediate Unit.
The release says those scheduled to participate are: Jennifer Clancy, York Suburban School Board member; Eric Wolfgang, Central York School Board member; Michael Thew, Lincoln Intermediate Unit director; and Pamela Price, of the Pennsylvania School Boards Association.
York Suburban Supt. Kate Orban will also be on the panel, and said school board members from other districts are expected to participate, the release says.
