My name is Brenda Zendejas. I am a proud parents of two young boys who attend our public schools at Alum Rock School District.
As a parent and Resource Specialist Para for Hubbard Elementary School, I saw there were opportunities to further improve educational programs for our students.
I decided to become a parent representative on my sons School Site Council to share to my ideas. This first-hand experience of giving input on the construction of school budgets and utilization of school resources . This helped me realized the importance of being involve. I wanted to have an even bigger positive impact at our District and I was recommended to join the District Advisory Committee where inputs will have District wide implications. Upon joining the committee, I received Trustee training and District budget training to understand how resources are allocated and financial decisions are made.I witnessed and protested the current School Board’s misuse of taxpayer money, and woeful commitment to quality education and safe school facilities.
I am running for Alum Rock Union Elementary School District Board of Trustee to strengthen the District’s commitment to 21st century science, engineering, math, reading, and writing curriculum. We need to repair hazardous school facilities to provide safe learning environments for students to concentrate on preparing for high school, college. I want to see listen to our community, teachers, staff, parents and students who deserve to be heard.
I want to work to restore the trust between parents, community members, and our board members. All children need to be represented and receive quality education. We need to support our teachers, principals, and staff who do a great job.
I would be honored to have your vote.
