From Pachyderm: Wichita school board candidates


From the Wichita Pachyderm Club this week: Candidates for the board of USD 259, the Wichita public school district. This was recorded October 4, 2019.

In board district 3, incumbent Ernestine Krehbiel is running unopposed, so this event did not include that district.

In board district 4, the candidates are James W. Kilpatrick, Jr. and Stan Reeser (incumbent).

For the at-large board district, which covers the entire school district, the candidates are Sheril Logan (incumbent) and Joseph Shepard.

Of note, the boundaries of the Wichita school district are not the same as the City of Wichita boundaries. Substantial parts of the city lie in other districts such as the Maize, Goddard, Andover, and Derby school districts, while the Wichita school district includes all or parts of Bel Aire, Kechi, and Park City.

Also, while candidates for a specific school board district must live within that district and represent that district, voters in the entire Wichita school district will see the candidates for all board districts on their ballot, and may vote in each contest.

The district offers this map.
