STAMFORD, Conn. — Stamford Peace Basketball Club Inc. and its Beyond Limits Academic Program, together with the Boys & Girls Club of Stamford, will hold a nonpartisan Board of Education candidate forum Wednesday from 6:15-9:15 p.m. at the Yerwood Center, 90 Fairfield Ave.
All 13 registered candidates have confirmed their participation. The event is open to the public. Candidates will have an opportunity to make a brief opening statement, followed by a chance to answer questions posed to them first by a student panel and then questions collected from the audience.
The forum will be moderated, with each candidate having equal time to respond to questions. An informal reception will follow.
“We’re delighted to be sponsoring this Board of Ed forum to allow the general public to get to know the candidates,” said Andy Sklover, co-founder of Beyond Limits. “Our focus is on students, and the quality of the education they are receiving. We hope this forum stimulates more families to become involved in the political process, which can only enhance their comfort and ability to advocate for their children.”
Established in 2008, Stamford Peace is a high-level basketball program serving about 1,000 boys and girls from first through 12th grades throughout Fairfield County. In 2013, the Beyond Limits Academic Program was launched as a program of Stamford Peace, and provides highly subsidized one-on-one academic tutoring and informal mentoring to its student-athletes and Stamford Public Schools students.
