As we look to the 2020-2021 school year, we are certainly facing an incredibly unique time in history. While we navigate these unchartered waters, I am excited for opportunities to re-envision education in ways that maintain student health and well-being while bringing equity to the forefront.
As President of the San Mateo County School Boards Association I look forward to building upon and extending the work we embarked upon with the Equity Network because every one of our students can and should thrive. I look forward to strengthening existing partnerships and building new ones as we come together as a united county of school districts. Together, we can hold each other up through the challenges to ensure that all students have access to a quality, equitable education.
To compliment equity work and to facilitate opportunities for us to grow and learn together, our fantastic Board of Directors is meeting this summer to plan out another year of professional development for our members and opportunities to form those crucial lines of communication across district lines. As a membership we are privileged to have a wealth of knowledge available to us from other members and our County Office of Education. I hope that I have the opportunity to meet each of you at an upcoming SMCSBA event or at the 2020 Kent Awards. A link to our events page is here.
Thank you all for your dedication to our students.
2020-2021 SMCSBA President
