I am excited to seek re-election to the School Board of the Las Virgenes Unified School District.  It is an honor to serve our children and the LVUSD community.

Proven Leadership and Experience

My proven leadership, quality experience and a deep understanding of the values of our community are essential to ensuring the continuation of excellence in education in our district. I currently serve as LVUSD School Board Vice President.

Over the past few years our school district and our entire community have faced unprecedented challenges. With a focus on the health and safety of our students and staff, the Board and district leadership team was well-prepared to fully address the complexity of problems presented by the Woolsey Fire and the COVID-19 Pandemic.

A Dedicated, Outspoken Advocate

During the Pandemic, my focus was on providing the highest level of education, while closely monitoring county health protocols. With all-hands-on-deck, LVUSD was the first district in LA County to re-open all of our schools.

To ensure that our students had the necessary academic and emotional support, I strongly advocated for hiring tutors and additional counselors in all grades, TK-12. I am proud to report these additional services will remain in place at every school this academic year.

Enhance Learning Through Dynamic Programs

As an LVUSD Board Member, I monitor advancements and emerging academic changes so that our schools can offer innovative programming to enhance learning for all students.

I have helped create an environment where our faculty and staff can explore, identify, and implement dynamic programs. LVUSD has a wide-variety of options and opportunities in Academics, Career Pathways, Science, Technology, Arts, Music and Athletics.

Comprehensive Understanding of the School District

I have had the distinct privilege of serving on every committee including Curriculum, Finance, Safety and Wellness, Facilities, Technology, and Pathways. Therefore, I have a comprehensive understanding of the complexities of the school district. I have the depth of knowledge to ask strategic questions and make thoughtful, informed policy decisions that support our LVUSD community.

Prioritizing Safety and Facilities

Safety and school facilities remain priorities. Spearheaded by our School Board, the district conducted an independent safety audit with a nationally recognized expert to evaluate every school site. LVUSD was awarded over a million dollars in grants that was used to enhance safety measures. We have also increased partnerships with our local law enforcement. 

Many of our schools were built more than 50 years ago and will require repairs and upgrades to meet current instructional health and safety standards.

Equipped For New Challenges

The State is adding an entire new grade level, Universal Transitional Kindergarten (TK) for all four year olds. Implementing TK will require strategic planning, additional teachers, as well as reconfiguring and adding classrooms and bathrooms to every elementary school.

Fiscal oversight and prudent budget decisions include a strong focus on student learning. My efforts at building relationships with our representatives at the federal, state and local levels allows me to advocate for increased funding for our LVUSD students. 

Technology continues to be of vital importance in educating students. LVUSD has recently launched an online school for K-12 (LVIS – Las Virgenes Independent School). 

Tradition of Academic Excellence

The Las Virgenes Unified School District, with its rich tradition of academic excellence, is among the top 2% of school districts in California – a proud achievement I share with our community partners.

With your vote, I will continue to be a dedicated, outspoken advocate for our students, families, community, and the professionals we employ.

Thank you for your interest in my campaign for re-election.
