Ex-Mayor R.T. Rybak, who now assumes his biggest school role to date as director of the nonprofit Generation Next, said he’ll spend several months listening to candidates before getting involved in the election.

Some incumbents, notably Mammen, chafe over periodic reminders that in 2010, before they were sworn in, four of them signed identical letters on teacher union letterhead urging the board in office then to resolve teacher contract negotiations. They later apologized.

They point to other accomplishments, such as a better credit rating, a new discipline policy that emphasizes restorative measures to keep students in school, a new equity framework designed to evaluate district actions, a five-year enrollment plan and the reopening of schools.
