Trustee candidate: Rose Tustian running in Fraser Cascade

School District 78: Tustian, Rose - Trustee Candidate

Rose Tustian

With my track record as a Trustee and my experience working for the community, I am the exceptionally qualified candidate who will ensure the best possible outcome is achieved for our combined community’s children.

I am seeking re-election for my fifth term as a school trustee. For 20 years I have been a strong advocate for our public education system, focusing on parent involvement and student achievement in the unique communities of Agassiz/Harrison Hot Springs, and Fraser Cascade School District 78 as a whole. I began as a classroom volunteer in my children’s school and progressed to the school Parent Advisory Committee, District Parent Advisory Committee, and BC Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils, bringing a broad overview over the system forward to the Board table as your elected trustee for the Board of Education.

I will continue to work on:

  • Increasing graduation rates; our district is well above the provincial average for First Nations graduates. Our Alternate Center for Education is now graduating senior citizens!

  • Improving literacy and numeracy skills for all students.

  • Grade-to-grade transition rates and preparation for post-secondary education, trades, and future jobs.

Your Board of Education has been a good steward of public education dollars. We currently have a $4,000,000 contingency fund and great care needs to be taken to ensure the expenditure of these funds remains transparent, consultative, and utilized district wide for student success.
