Andrews advocates for all students

Our local school board needs the continued participation of Carol Andrews. She listens, collaborates and discusses her ideas in a civil and constructive manner. Carol participates actively to create solutions confronting the district and the children it serves. Her ideas and values have helped the district address the changing, diverse needs of the students and families within our district.

Carol sees the big picture. She is a passionate advocate for equity and access for all students. There is an opportunity gap that slows some students from achieving their full potential. She has worked hard to address that gap in this district.

She has faithfully served our community as a school board member for the past six years, understanding that an effective board member collaborates with their fellow board members, the administration and community to reach the one common goal: Success for our children. Please join me in voting for a board member who through hard work and loyalty has earned our support.
