To help voters decide who to vote for to fill four slots on the Teton County School District No. 1 Board of Trustees, the News&Guide is asking the nine candidates questions in the weeks leading up to the election.

In one of several efforts to mitigate overcrowded classrooms, the district plans to reconfigure the town’s two elementary schools. Next September, Jackson Elementary and Colter Elementary schools will both run from kindergarten to fifth grade. In 2018 Munger Mountain Elementary School will open south of town — relieving stress on existing schools.
