Palo Alto residents can direct questions and concerns toward Palo Alto Unified School District school board candidates at a major forum from 7 to 8:30 p.m. tonight (Friday).
The "Come Meet the Palo Alto School Board Candidates" forum will be held at the Palo Alto Family YMCA, 3412 Ross Road.
Nationally known dispute-management specialist Nancy Yeend will moderate the panel discussion.

Participants can comment about the schools and suggest questions for the forum at http://svmomblog.typepad.com/silicon_valley_moms_blog/2007/10/draft-come-meet.html .
