Kathy Decker for Vancouver School Board
Hi, I'm Kathy! I'm running for position #4 on the Vancouver Public Schools Board of Directors.
As a veteran teacher, I know how to tell the difference between a policy that will actually help kids and one that will cause more problems than it'll solve. All three of my kids attended VPS schools, so I've seen how the district can provide both incredible opportunities and infuriating challenges.
My platform is rooted in two philosophies: clear communication and pragmatism. I believe our leaders need to actively listen to our parents, our teachers, and our kids. They need to tell us what's going on with our schools and why, being straightforward and transparent at every step. Our policies need to be flexible and based in research and real-world impact; if something isn't working, we need to be willing to change it.
Vote Kathy Decker on August 6th, because every child deserves a champion!
