School District 70: Pam Craig - Trustee candidate

  • Oct. 30, 2014 3:00 p.m.

I am seeking re-election for school trustee for the board of education in School District 70, Alberni. I am passionate about the work of school trustees and I wish to continue working for the students of SD70.

I was first elected in 1991 and served four terms to 2002. I returned to trusteeship in 2011 and I wish to continue in this next term to 2018.

My board experience includes working on all committees of the board as well as board chair from 1996 to 2002.

My primary focus is on the educational needs of all students in SD70. The most important work of a trustee is to put in place the resources that will prepare students for careers as contributing members of society.

Students need every opportunity to succeed, whether, it be in post-secondary education at university or in training for trades and technology.

School trustees have a responsibility to look at the “big picture” to ensure all decisions balance the needs of all students.

My goal is to work to set a direction for our district that has high expectation for student achievement and quality instruction. I support a collaborative approach with all stakeholders both within the district and the community to share in the belief and values about what is possible for students’ ability to learn.

As a trustee for SD70, I will work to build a school system that reflects local priorities, local values and local expectations.
