Meet the 2017 School Board Candidates

April 7, 2017

Candidate Information:

There are four candidates running for two school board positions this spring.  We posed several questions to the  candidates running this year.    The questions were:

  1.  Tell us a little about yourself and why you’ve decided to run for a school board position.
  2. What unique qualities would you bring to the school board?
  3. How have you been involved with Coppell ISD prior to running for school board?
  4. What do you see as the biggest challenges for the district in the next five years?
  5. How important is serving the needs of gifted kids?
  6. How does Coppell ISD currently serve gifted kids and how does that compare to other districts?

Thom Hulme and Ron Hansen are running for Place 4.  David Caviness and Vara Kuppam are running for Place 5.    So you can read the complete response from each candidate, we have placed their responses into their own page, and the links are below:

Thom Hulme’s Responses (Place 4)

Please note that Coppell Gifted Association does not support or endorse any candidate and offers these responses as a service to its members to help you make an informed decision on Election Day.  Regardless of who you support, please get out there and have your voice heard on May 6th.

Any grammatical or spelling errors within the candidates responses are their own – we’ve simply compiled their answers as submitted.
