WHY YOUR VOTE MATTERS

On April 19th, Newark voters will elect three members to the Board of Education. The Newark Board of Education members have a critical impact on our children’s lives and our communities. They’re in charge of setting the vision and goals for the district, approving the Newark Public Schools’ budget, and choosing the Superintendent. They also develop policies and regulations about curriculum, safety & health, police presence in schools, and more.

Our schools need strong leadership, and our kids’ futures depend on your vote for the Newark Board of Education. Mark your calendar for April 19th!

Together, we can use our votes to speak out on the issues that matter most.
