Newark voters will elect three school board candidates on Tuesday and decide on the $138 million tax levy for next school year, which would remain the same as this year’s.
Polls opened at 7 a.m. and will remain open until 8 p.m.
Chalkbeat asked the candidates questions about their top priorities if elected, what policies they would push to support students’ mental health, learning loss, and more. Check out their answers here.
Nearly $94,000 has been poured in the race, with more than a third of that going to three candidates endorsed by local and state politicians, and charter school advocates. Read more about that here.
Check back later for more on the race. This story will be updated when preliminary results come in.
