Meet the 2020 Coppell ISD School Board Candidates

October 21, 2020

Candidate Information:

There are three candidates running for two school board positions in Coppell ISD with voting currently taking place.  We posedd several questions to each of  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?  Why?
  6. How does Coppell ISD currently serve gifted kids and how does that compare to other districts?

Neena Biswas and Thom Hulme are running for Place 4.  David Caviness is running uncontested for Place 5.   So you can read the complete response from each candidate, we have placed responses received into their own page, and the links are below:
