Ashland School Board Candidate Voter Education Resources

ashland high school springThe Ashland School Board has three seats up for election on May 18th, and now is the time to VOTE!

Your voice is so important when it comes to selecting our local school representatives. These Board members will shape our local education systems, and set the vision and direction for years ahead. In a time when pandemic changes have rocked the foundation of our schools, our representatives will truly be working extra hard to re-integrate our students and teachers, address gaps, set new policies, and blaze fresh paths forward when it comes to Ashland's educational and community excellence.

Below are a handful of resources as you educate yourself on the candidates' positions, experiences, abilities and priorities. As a reminder, ballots must be received by 8pm on Tuesday, May 18th. They can be mailed (recommended no later than Fri, May 14) or dropped off at the Ashland Public Library, 410 Siskiyou Blvd in the ballot drop box (in the alley behind the library by the book drop off).

You can also view this list of Offical Ballot Drop Off locations in Jackson County.
