The mission of Public Education Partners is to lead our community in acting collectively to support, strengthen and advance public education and student achievement in Greenville County Schools. Integral to our work is an effective school board that acts knowledgeably, responsibly and in the best interest of our community and all 77,000 students in our school system.

To that end, we have developed a questionnaire to help ensure that voters have information they need before choosing their representative for school board.

Questionnaires were sent out to all 14 candidates who filed. Candidates’ responses were limited to 150 words per question. Other than edits to meet the 150 word limit, responses are uploaded exactly as provided.

Not sure which school board district you live in? Find out here.

Candidates were also invited to sit down and speak with our President & CEO, Catherine Schumacher as a part of the Simple Civics Podcast series. Click here to listen to podcast interviews.
