Augusta County School Board candidates answer your questions

With Election Day set for Tuesday, The News Leader asked area parents and educators what they’d like to know about their candidates for school board in Augusta County’s South River District. We selected eight questions to ask and the candidates’ emailed responses are below.

There are two candidates running in a special election to fill the unexpired term. The winner will serve one year. Stephen Troxell is already serving in the position after being appointed by the board earlier this year. Mike Lawson is challenging him.

Steve Troxell, who represents the South River District on the Augusta County School Board, is running for election to the seat this fall. He was appointed to the board in February.

What is your plan to increase teacher retention and help alleviate teacher burnout?

“Continue to vote for higher salaries and better benefits, maintain and improve instructional environments, and support appropriate alternatives for students who have difficulty in a traditional instructional environment. Strive to reduce non-instructional duties and to ensure sufficient planning time. Advocate for better academic learning environments free of outside societal distractions to instruction.”
