Attendees of the Sept. 13 forum will have the opportunity to submit written questions to the candidates. These questions will be screened by AAUW members before giving them to the moderator to assure that they are related to the school board position and are not redundant.

Questions can also be submitted in advance to kenhowell161@gmail.com.

Attendance will be limited to the room capacity of 300. The forum will be recorded and made available on the Voice of Alexandria later.

For the safety of all, attendees are encouraged to wear a mask and socially distance if possible.
