Candace Spilsbury running

My name is Candace Spilsbury and I am seeking your support to be elected as a School Board trustee.

I have extensive experience in the education field.

I have worked as a teacher, a principal, a District administrator & a School Trustee. This gives me a clear vision of what excellence in education looks like & I’m willing to work hard to achieve this for our kids in all schools and in all communities in the School District.

My lifelong passions are Education, Kids & the community. I have dedicated my life to the success & well-being of these passions and I am committed to continuing to do so. For me, being a School trustee is a perfect fit.

There is a lot of work to be done to support our education system, especially now. I know the issues &

I can contribute to finding the best solutions. For example, we need more funding for our classrooms & for our students with special needs and we need to continue to work on graduation rates, aboriginal education & early learning.

My leadership approach has always been based on effective working relationships & collaboration at the school, District & community levels with the belief that together we can make positive change. We can, as a community, work together to have every student be successful. And, I passionately want to be part of making this happen.

What issues concern you most and why?

My vision is for success for all students in all schools in the District.

To achieve this vision I will work hard on:

~increased student success rates

~ effective working relationships with the schools, education partners & the broader community

~fiscal responsibility, including balancing the budget

while advocating strongly for more funding.

~& effective communication & collaboration

I have the educational knowledge & experience to bring a strong voice to the Board table.

I am committed to working hard & I have what it takes to positively contribute to education & the community

I am fair, honest, experienced & committed to keeping students first and bringing the community’s voice to the Board table.
