Rhinelander School Board Candidate Forum

The Rhinelander High School Key Club and the Social Studies Department in conjunction with the League of Women Voters of the Northwoods invites you to participate in the School Board Candidates' Forum on Thursday, March 15, 2018, at the Rhinelander High School Superior Diesel tiered classroom, 665 Coolidge Avenue, Rhinelander, WI at 1:40 pm to 3:00 pm. Please enter through Door 2 at the front of the High School.

The public is invited to arrive at 1:15 pm to prepare written questions for the candidates. All candidates for the 3 seats of the Rhinelander School Board, who have filed the necessary paperwork, have been invited to attend, to speak and to answer questions from the public. The forum will be moderated by two Advanced Placement Government students, and facilitated by the League of Women Voters of the Northwoods and the Key Club.

This event is a great opportunity for voters and candidates to meet, ask questions and share views. During the forum, each candidate will be asked to make a brief ninety second introduction to include who they are, why they are running for the School Board, what background they bring to help the School Board, and what they believe to be the most important issue in the Rhinelander School District today. After opening statements, audience questions will be selected by the moderators for discussion. The Key Club students have worked with the League for the past two years registering students to vote.
