Greendale — Greendale School Board President Joe Crapitto is running against three other residents for two school board seats in the general election. The other candidates are Noelle Joers-Yanisch, Kathy Vincent and John Comiskey. Current school board member Anne Szcygiel will not run for re-election.
The Greendale Education Association held interviews for each of the Greendale School District school board candidates on Wednesday March 18. Members had an opportunity to meet, ask questions and have a dialogue with each candidate individually about their vision, priorities, and goals they hope to bring to the school board if elected on April 7. After the Interview Committee reported their recommendations to the GEA Executive Board, the Association has determined that the candidates running this spring possess the skills, qualifications and ability to ably serve the district and the community. Greendale needs a school board that is able to make difficult decisions in light of the current economic realities our district faces, while keeping student growth and achievement at the center of what makes Greendale Schools the high-achieving institutions they have been over the years.
