Students are entering a new era of learning in B.C. and a mother of three in Oliver wants to be a part of it.
Rachel Allenbrand is seeking re-election as school board trustee, a position she has held for the last four years.
“My children all have unique learning styles so I have a true understanding of the many challenges that both students and parents face as they navigate the school system.”
Allenbrand said she has learned a lot about decision- making at the district level and how decisions made at the board table impact students.
“Student success is our main priority and we are embarking on a new era of education around the globe.”
She noted the use of technology in the classroom is a reality, but despite this, learning for students and families can be daunting at times.
Allenbrand said it is their responsibility, as trustees, to support and provide teachers and staff with opportunities to navigate the new and innovative ways of learning and teaching.
“It is my belief that by providing both teachers and students with the support they need we will prepare them for the ever-changing world that we live in.”
