One of Stand for Children’s core values is electing education champions who will advocate for our most vulnerable and underrepresented students to ensure that ALL students have access to an education that prepares them for success in life. As a statewide organization, we have endorsed candidates from across the state running for the Colorado House and Senate, State Board of Education, and recently governor. We have also engaged in school board elections in Denver because that is where many of the parents we organize live. This year we are expanding our endorsements to other Colorado school districts because we recognize how much power to impact our students’ education is placed in the hands of school board members. We are excited to announce that we have endorsed candidates running for school board in Adams 12, Aurora, Douglas County, and Weld County 6 school districts.
These candidates were interviewed by staff, completed our endorsement survey, and were selected for endorsement by members of our parent endorsement committee. These candidates have a demonstrated commitment to equity in our education system and will stand up for polices to improve education in ways that will ensure students can thrive.
