SD51 AREA C CANDIDATE: Cindy Strukoff

My name is Cindy Strukoff and I moved to Christina Lake 10 years ago with my family.

Cindy Strukoff

I moved to Christina Lake 10 years ago with my family.

I have held positions on the Christina Lake Elementary School and Grand Forks Secondary School Parent Advisory Councils and as well,

I was a founding member of the Boundary District Parent Advisory Council in 2003.

As a parent leader, I have a genuine interest in our school district.

I have worked on improving communication between the board of education and the community, which has resulted in parents being included on many district committees. However, we need to do more work to ensure that our community feels that the school district plans and policies reflect our local priorities and values.

Through my interactions with my child’s school and other parents, it has given me the opportunity to witness the diversity within our district and experience directly how each child requires support.

I have a strong background in budget and general accounting and knowledge of district policies, guidelines, needs and challenges. I believe that encouraging community and families to be engaged in their child’s learning is a key component to student success.

By creating opportunities for collaboration and respectful sharing of diverse views on education, it will help build solid relationships.

When we have an open and respectful discourse with our students, parents, citizens and staff, as trustees we strengthen our decision making, benefiting our public education system, our children, our families and our community. If elected I would bring these beliefs to the table.
