Information for Candidates
All candidates seeking office are invited to apply for our association’s recommendation. Candidates submitting completed questionnaires will be invited to interview with our panel of educators.
HCEA is extremely proud of the democratic participation of rank-and-file educators throughout our recommendation process. Candidates complete a questionnaire, and are invited to interview with our panel. From there, the recommendation proceeds through all levels of HCEA governance, finally coming before our over 200 elected HCEA building representative for a vote on recommendation.
