Election 2016 is an opportunity to elect individuals who support public education and its professionals!  While the candidates’ positions on the issues are at the heart of the recommendation process, UTD evaluates other factors such as the district’s political and demographic profile as well as the candidate’s viability in that district. 

UTD’s process of recommending candidates begins at the grassroots level with a team of local members interviewing candidates on education issues.  Click here for Candidate Information - Member I.D. and password required.
