Julie Fisher - Pembina Trails - 3
Why did you decide to run in the 2018 (Winnipeg Civic Election / School Board Election)?
I decided to run for re-election as School Trustee in Pembina Trails School Division because I love my job! School Trustees play a very important role in the education system and I want to continue that work. Pembina Trails has implemented a number of programs to help our students reach graduation and find their individual passions. I would like to remain at the table so I can bring the community’s voice to the entire board. As our province enters into a full education review in 2019 I feel I have the experience to represent our children, families and taxpayers to communicate what we value and what our students need.
What experience will you bring to complement your role as (Mayor / Councillor / School Trustee)?
I have been a School Trustee for 8 years. During my time on the board we secured funding, designed and opened a new school. We secured funding for a new High School and K-8 school. We changed grade configurations in a number of schools and we have changed catchments. All of this has required a high level of communication and engagement with our communities. Schools have a very special relationship with families and when you implement change it is received in many different ways. I have learned a great deal from parents, schools and our communities in what they expect from their school division. I plan on using that experience as we continue to grow and change.
What are some issues that you would like to stand for in your role as (Mayor / Councillor / School Trustee), and why are these issues important to you?
I would like to see equitable funding for all students in the province. School divisions are very lucky in that they can rely on local taxpayers to help fund programs that are highly needed in our schools, but we can’t keep asking them to fund programming that the province should be supporting.
I strongly support individual funding of our schools to provide them the flexibility to respond to their student needs. Examples of this are full day kindergarten, Ignite 3 (summer learning program) and hockey skills programming.
What is something that you appreciate about the (City of Winnipeg / the ward / the school ward or school division) you wish to represent?
Pembina Trails is made up of caring, thoughtful staff that have one clear goal…student success. They are dedicated to helping our students find their passion and as their Board of Trustees we are committed to them. Our schools respond to our students by providing breakfast programs, walking school buses, buddy programs, etc. They know that a child needs to be completely supported in order to have success and I am very proud of everything they do.
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
I am a very dedicated and engaged trustee and I would like to keep representing the community of Ward 3 in Pembina Trails School Division.
