School District 85 candidate: Lyn Skrlac, Area 3

School District 85: Skrlac, Lyn — Trustee candidate, Area 3

Lyn Skrlac

The role of trustee is not unfamiliar to me after 21 years of experience locally and provincially for School District 85. That time has given me valuable knowledge of history in bargaining, policy development, hiring and leadership development.

I am well aware of the pressure of trusteeship as well as the enormous sense of accomplishment in being part of children’s and families’ lives.

The pressing issues, as I see them, are the following:

• Rebuilding working relationships with teachers after the strike;

• Working through the ongoing discussions on class size and composition;

• Continuing to adjust to the effects of falling enrolment throughout the district; and

• Lobbying hard and continuously with the Ministry of Education for funding to offer the best, up-to-date education for our students.

My time as a former trustee, the owner of a small business, raising our three children — schooled here — and living on the North Island since 1976, gives me strong sense of community and the confidence to be your locally elected trustee.

I have been Tried, I have been Tested, and I have been True, to both my community and the education of the children of SD 85.

I respectfully ask for your vote on Nov. 5, 2014.
