Thank you to the Democratic Club of Wicomico County for hosting the first candidate forum for Board of Education candidates. 12 of the 18 candidates participated in the non-partisan event and many of them had great ideas on how to improve Wicomico County Public Schools.
Following opening remarks by Dr. Kel Nagel, who was president of the Wicomico BOE from 1984-95, the
candidates then took questions from the audience. Issues discussed included Career & Technical Education (CTE), safety in schools, school resource officers, parents/family nights and other ways to involve parents and families, and funding.
