The Mayor’s Office has released the names of those who applied or were nominated to the new city school board. 

The Educational Nominating Panel will hold its second public meeting Monday, Feb. 26, to vote on recommending 27 candidates to Mayor Kenney. That meeting will be held at 2:30 p.m. in Room 202 at City Hall.

Before the panel votes, there will be an opportunity for its members to hear public comment. Speakers can sign up here:


Kenney will have 20 days to select nine of those candidates or 10 days to request additional names.

The 13- member nominating panel has been meeting all month and selected for interviews an unknown number of people from among the more than 500 whose names were submitted. The panel split up into groups of three to conduct individual half-hour interviews. People who continued in the process were also asked to answer a detailed questionnaire listing potential conflicts of interest and other information and to submit it by Feb. 19.
