CNS Hosted the first-ever "Zoom" Candidates' forum for the SBUSD in September, 2020.  Our focus was to ask the candidates their position on creating a downtown elementary school and increasing opportunities for children to be able to walk to school. 


The candidates were  asked these questions:

1.  Do they believe every elementary student should be able to walk to school?

2.  Would they support consideration of moving the Santa Barbara Unified School District's administrative offices and maintenance facility from their current location to another downtown elementary school?

3.  What models of language instruction do the candidates favor?

4.  How can art and music instruction be expanded for all students?
