Three candidates vying for the Jackson Township seat on the Seymour Community school board say parent involvement, the search for a superintendent and effective implementation of state education laws are what the corporation must focus on to improve the district’s outlook.
Those running are longtime incumbent Martha McIntire, 73; Jeff Joray, 47, a former city council member; and education advocate Monique Christensen, 41.
Joray said his 10 years serving on city council and his current work as unit director at Boys & Girls Club of Seymour have given him the skills and knowledge needed to help make decisions in the best interest of children.
“I understand the need for the board, administration and faculty to work together to achieve the common goal of giving our students the opportunity and resources to achieve their goals,” Joray said.
