Why I Support Jeanie Schulze for CKSD School Board

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

I first met Jeanie by virtue of my privileged involvement in the CK Kids Matter Group where we worked closely together to help drum up local support for the successful passage of the recent school levy.

Jeanie has over 30 years of experience as a parent volunteer, community member, and district employee.  She has a deep understanding of the difficulties our schools are dealing with and the crucial role our School Board provides in setting policy, providing common-sense leadership, and the strength of character necessary to make tough decisions.

Jeanie retired as CK School District Community Relations Specialist with experience in budget, finance, and facilities planning. She has developed volunteer programs that provide helpful district information to parents, staff, and the community.

She has served on the Silverdale Chamber of Commerce Board, the Paul Linder Education Foundation Board, the CK Kids Matter Committee, and currently serves on the Kitsap Adult Center for Education Board.

She earned her B.A. from Indiana University and is a nationally certified facilitator and trainer for developing school volunteer and community partnerships.

With the very significant challenges facing our district in the next few years, we need the seasoned, experienced talents/abilities, and commitment that Jeanie Schulze offers.

Please join me in support of her bid for CK School Board!

Twelve  educators were honored by the Central Kitsap School Board during their meeting last Wednesday night for attaining National Board Certification. This is the highest number yet for our District!

Honorees, family members and friends came to celebrate  at a reception prior to individual recognition at the School Board meeting where each teacher received a personalized frame to display their certificates.  In addition, CKSD Superintendent Greg Lynch presented the School Board President, Chris Stokke, with a “perpetual plaque” listing the names of all CKSD National Board Certified teachers. The plaque will be displayed permanently in the Jenne-Wright Administration Center, and new names will be added each year.

In his address to the assembly, Superintendent Lynch shared the following:

“It takes a tremendous amount of hard work and determination to earn National Board Certification. We currently have 29 National Board Certified teachers; 8 teachers earned their Certification last year and twelve teachers this year, over a 30% increase!  I am exceptionally proud of their success and dedication to excellence.  It also is a testament to our District’s commitment to advancing student learning and to the importance of powerful teaching and learning.”

This year, 1,248 Washington teachers were certified, placing the state second nationally in new National Board Certified teachers. Washington’s 3,974 total National Board Certified teachers place the state fifth in the nation.

Congratulations to all the honorees for all of your dedication and hard work in completing such a distinctive level of  achievement!
