As your INDEPENDENT candidate, I answer only to you. This is my commitment:
“I will prioritize education funding going into classrooms, where it belongs.”
Neighbourhood schools are the heart of communities, they are a precious resource.
“I will work to cultivate a thriving relationship with parents, labour partners, communities, students, and government“
A school district works best when stakeholders believe and trust one another. I will work towards that through transparency, integrity, and clarity.
“I will prioritize seismic upgrades and the building of appropriately-sized neighbourhood schools.”
The seismic remediation programme is late. It was intended to be completed next year but we have 16 H1 schools left. Every single child put at risk through this is a stain on the school district and the Ministry of Education.
“There is no place in Vancouver schools for exclusion”
Every student deserves to reach their full potential free from bullying, harassment, or intimidation. I will work to bring back the district advisory committees dedicated to addressing discrimination and bias.
“I will advocate for indigenous language instruction to be made available to all students.”
I will work to make VSB the School Board of Reconciliation.
I will put students first”
Our schools are a precious resource to be cherished. School Trustees are elected to care for them so our children can thrive.
I pledge to do this for our city and our children.
I need your help!
