Acclaimed: Cindy Strukoff, Area C rep, SD51

Cindy Strukoff has been acclaimed as the Area C rep to the board of education.

Cindy Strukoff has been acclaimed as the Area C representative on the School District 51 board of education.

I am Cindy Strukoff and I am the SD51 School Trustee representing Christina Lake “Area C”.

Over the past 3 years I have worked hard to engage and be part of our school community.  I am very excited to continue as trustee for the next four years as I am still very passionate about being an involved citizen in our education system and wish to continue my work in supporting public education for the children and families in School District 51.

Prior to becoming a SD 51 School Trustee,  I was very involved in my children’s schools through Parent Advisory Councils and the Boundary District Parent Advisory Council, of which I was the Chairperson for several years. The skills that I bring to the job are openness and transparency, a desire to create a stronger relationship with the community and our education partners, the desire to support students and teachers and a respect for diverse points of view.

I believe it is very important that we continue to advocate to our provincial government for increased, stable and consistent funding to support our students.    We must also continue  to support our most vulnerable students and families so that they are able to be successful.  I sit on our BISM (Boundary Integrated Services) board where we work together with other Boundary agencies to help address the challenges facing our communities.  As a result of declining enrollment we are challenged to meet the needs of all our students so we must, as a board, encourage and support our educators to be flexible and innovative in order to provide a relevant and engaging education to all our students.

I am very thankful that Christina Lake is continuing to support me in my role of their trustee.  Over my past term I have been the representative for BCSPEA and BCSTA as well as sitting on the BCSTA Legislative Committee and Education Committee.  I am also the SD51 representative on the Grand Forks Recreation Committee and the Boundary Integrated Services (BISM) board.  I believe that trustees are directly accountable to the people they serve and as such I attend as many school events as possible in order to find ways to engage our school community so that they can help guide me in my decisions.
