CRES PTA hosts school board candidates
The Cosumnes River Elementary School PTA will host candidates for the Elk Grove Unified School District board at its meeting Wednesday. There will be a brief presentation followed by a question-and-answer period. Community members are invited to attend and meet the candidates. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the CRES multi-purpose room.
The school district is governed by a seven-member board, with board members elected at large for four-year terms.
There are eight candidates running this year for three seats on the board. In Area 7, which includes Rancho Murieta, retired teacher Carmine Forcina and Theresa Beals, a parent, are taking on appointed incumbent Alfred Rowlett.
