About the event
"Hello, I'm Christina Vera and I am running for the Columbus City School Board. As a resident of Columbus, a CCS alumna, and the mother of CCS students, I have seen and understand the need for effective change in our district.
I am running for a position on the school board because I believe every child in the Columbus City School District deserves a progressive education that will prepare them with the tools, foresight and support they need to succeed in and outside of the classroom regardless of their zip code.
It’s time for effective change in leadership that is willing to go the extra mile to provide innovative solutions that work. I want to be able to work alongside the 4,000+ teachers, librarians, nurses, counselors, psychologists, cafeteria workers, and bus drivers to create, adopt and implement the most effective and equitable educational opportunities for our students. I want to focus on restorative practices to bring together our students, families, teachers, and school board officials. We need to rebuild and restore community in all CCS schools. I will fight to make sure all students and staff are equipped with the supplies, support and training they need to be successful regardless of whether they are virtual or in a classroom. I want to advocate for equitable legislation to review our literacy programs and revise standardized testing requirements.
