Wichita USD 259 school board candidates are coming to Wichita State to hear from Wichita State students ahead of the Nov. 7 general election.

The USD 259 School Board debate is currently scheduled for Oct. 25 at 6 p.m. in Hubbard Hall 211.

During the event, hosted by Civic Engagement, students will have the opportunity to ask candidates questions and hear their plans for mental health services, teaching working conditions, student conduct, coping with the loss of support from COVID-19 relief funds, and other education-related issues.

There are three seats on the school board up for election: District 3, District 4 and an at-large seat, meaning the member can be from any district.

This follows the mayoral candidate debate held at Wichita State on Oct. 18, where incumbent Mayor Brandon Whipple and challenger Lily Wu answered questions about plans for the mayor’s office, should they be elected.
