Andriana Shea - Running For San Bruno Park School Board - 2020

Article Source:  Andriana Shea

As a San Bruno native with two young children, I have a vested interest in making sure my children, and yours, have access to a well-rounded curriculum, enrichment programs and exceptional teachers that will help them succeed in high school and beyond. As a daughter of an immigrant who reaped the benefits of the public school system, I understand and value the need for equity and access for all.

Over the last two years, I have been actively involved in helping to enhance our schools.  When my oldest daughter was in kindergarten, I was elected to serve on the board of the San Bruno Education Foundation (SBEF). I jumped at the opportunity to use my Marketing degree to help rebrand SBEF, create a new website and streamline communication to our community. Also, it just felt good to know that I was helping to improve the educational experiences of my children and yours. In the last two years, the visibility of the organization has increased due to our communications strategy and has led to a broader donor base.

I have served on the LCAP (Local Control and Accountability Plan) and the Portrait of a Graduate committees to better understand and help set priorities for curriculum and student achievement so that our Parkside graduates are ready for high school. I was also asked to participate in the interview panel for our new superintendent and serve on the "Return to School Committee". I take all of these roles seriously and am happy to serve my community. 

Like many of you, I see such potential for growth and development within our school communities. However, this historically has been hindered by a lack of communication and community outreach from our district leadership and infighting from our board of trustees. The main problem that I see is that people are not prioritized. Not our students. Not our teachers. And not the greater community. 

Right now, we have a unique opportunity to make a change for the better. We have two board seats up for election and a new superintendent who is energized and excited for change. With me on the board of trustees, you will have a person who is not afraid to roll up their sleeves and do the hard work. Not afraid to speak out when our district is not prioritizing the needs of its most important assets: our students and teachers. I am ready and willing to fight for our children and to push for positive initiatives that tear down an outdated system and build a network of schools that are modern and functional.  

With me on the San Bruno Park School Board of Trustees, you will have someone who puts people first. Someone who will prioritize our kids, our teachers and our community. 

I humbly ask for your vote on November 3rd.
