A forum featuring the three candidates vying for two seats on the Coast Unified School District Board of Trustees will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 2.
The three candidates are incumbent Del Clegg and challengers Michael Foster of Cayucos and Lesli Murdock of Cambria.
The forum will be held at the district board room, 1350 Main St. It’s being sponsored by University Women of Cambria and facilitated by The League of Women Voters of San Luis Obispo County.The district is facing declining enrollment in a community of mostly retirees, new state teaching requirements, and an ongoing debate about Cayucos high school students who want to attend high school in another district.
Coast also has several new top executives, including Superintendent Vicki Schumacher, Business Officer Annie Lachance and high school Principal Jonathan Sison.
At the forum, audience members will turn in questions, which will be sorted and given to the moderator, who will address the questions to the three candidates. Similar questions may be combined or modified to save time.
Each candidate also will be given time for a brief opening statement and a brief closing statement.
