SacoSTEAM hosted a candidate forum for current Saco School Board candidates on Thursday, October 25 at City Hall.  Five of the current seven candidates were able to attend, and all were given the opportunity to introduce themselves before answering questions about how well the School Board has been doing and what they believe Saco Schools needs to do in the future to improve education for our children. The forum was moderated by Dr. Mike Burham, founding SacoSTEAM board member.
