Trustee candidate: Cindy Ferguson running in Fraser Cascade

School District 78: Ferguson, Cindy - Trustee Candidate

  • Oct. 21, 2014 2:00 p.m.

 

I am seeking your vote for School Trustee in Agassiz – Harrison municipal election. As a proud parent of three Agassiz Elemtary Secondary School graduates, one of them Valedictorian in 2014, I have demonstrated my abilities to advocate for public education, maintaining a focus on student learning, and student success. As a Trades-Woman, having successfully finished my Horticulture Apprenticeship in 2013, I support and encourage development of the Skilled Trade and Apprenticeship programs.

 

 

 

 

As a School Trustee, I will be bringing my progressive and multifaceted skills to the board. I am offering experience and diversity with a parent voice.

Over the past 15 years I have worked on:

Parent Advisory Council, District Parent Advisory Council, School Planning Councils, Administration Selection Committee, Accreditation Committee, Technology Committee, Graduation Committees.

My top three priorities for students for the Fraser are:

  • Access and development of the Trades and Technology programs

  • Work with families to support students for increased learning outcomes

  • Support for early childhood initiatives

An educational issue that I would like to see more focus on is the ever changing world of the internet in the classroom and its accessibility.

Make your choice on November 15, vote Cindy Ferguson
