Sparano said he's interested in governance and policy. Edina is currently in the process of transforming itself and he'd like a seat at the table during that transformation.
during the next four years.
Meyer, a three term incumbent, said he was asked to run when he was first elected to the school board in 2001. Since he's been elected, he's been a part of the district moving forward on various projects like the strategic plan and teacher evaluations.

The candidates were asked about the district's budgets, as the district faces a funding gap in the next several years.
O'Brien said the district should consider whether its programs are a success and then use its resources wisely.
Goldstein said teachers are the most important people in our lives and schools are the most important component in a community. Schools are under pressure and he would like to defend them.
Sparano said the district's infrastructure is the most important issue. The district's planned remodeling will translate to money from the taxpayers.
Dorvil said closing the achievement gap for students receiving free and reduced lunch, and for black and Latino students is the most pressing issue.
Busby said she was motived to run for office because district leadership should reflect the changing demographics of the community. She was also motived by the goal to broaden the view of Edina students and prepare them for a changing society.
The hour long candidate forum hosted by the League of Women Voters Edina on Tuesday, Sept. 24, covered the candidates' reasons for running for office, the achievement gap, the school district's budget, partnerships and technology. Candidates received one question ahead of time and the other questions were asked by the audience.
All nine candidates attended the forum. The candidates are Danielle Mitchell Busby, Gayle Castro, Leonel Dorvil, David Goldstein, Randy Meyer, Regina Neville, Lisa O'Brien, Mark Sparano and Vivien Talghader. There are four seats up for election in November.
Busby said the community needs to accept change to move forward. The community needs to "think outside the Edina bubble" and not rest on its laurels.
Goldstein said the district needs to figure out its priorities and then fund those priorities.
Castro said its time to cut up the credit cards. If the district doesn't have the money, it shouldn't be spending it.
Neville said the board's important task is implementing the Secondary Academic Study and the Birth Grade 5 Academic study. The board members need to ask questions and examine what the district does at every grade level to close the achievement gap.
Talghader said she was motivated to run for school board because of her concern about the district's strategic plan. She's concerned the plan, which the district is partway into implementing, doesn't have Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit Olive
Meyer said important issues are the district's strategic plan, the challenge of retaining the district's staff, and hiring a new superintendent after Supt. Ric Dressen's retirement.
Dorvil said he was motivated to run for a school board seat after he was alarmed by the lack of communication he received from staff when his nephew, for whom he's the guardian, wasn't doing well in school. He decided to step up and help make changes.
The candidate forum will be rebroadcast on Edina Channel 16 until Election Day on Nov. 5. 17 issue.
Talghader said the board's important task is assigning resources for the district's All For All mission, which will require funding and time for staff.
Castro said the biggest issue is safety in the school buildings, the buses and in the district's collection of data. The world is changing and the district needs to stay one step ahead.
Castro said she's concerned about the use of technology by students after her son started wanting to play on the computer rather than play outside after he was given assignments using a computer. She wants to ensure technology is used in an appropriate way and students are still learning communication skills needed for human interaction.
Goldstein said the district needs to have discussions with the community because innovation in the district will come with risks, but the community demands excellence and doesn't tolerate risk well.
O'Brien said she supports the district's personalized learning initiative and wants to ensure it is a part of the district as it moves Nike Vapormax Strap
Candidates were asked in advance the question of why they are seeking the office of the Edina School Board.
The nine Edina School Board candidates had a chance to show voters what makes them different during a candidates forum.
O'Brien said the community wants flexibility and choice. The district will face changing demographics and adapting its curriculum to the needs of new students coming into the district.
Neville, a one term incumbent, said that by serving on the school board, she can affect changes to policy. Stories and data need to be connected to make positive changes, she said.
