Education Matters is excited to endorse Liz Block and Stephanie Hernández-Jarvis in the 2018 WCCUSD School Board race.
We urge you to support them within your networks, and encourage your community to vote for them on November 6th!
LIZ BLOCK | WCCUSD BOARD TRUSTEE
We proudly support incumbent and former board president Elizabeth “Liz” Block for a second term on the WCCUSD School Board.
Since her election in 2014, Trustee Block has proven her ability to move our district forward. During her first term, she secured a 15% raise for teachers, helped drive our progress toward a reformed bond program, and challenged the board to embrace transparency, fiscal responsibility, and data-driven strategies that will improve teaching and learning in every classroom in our district.
A former principal, Block’s leadership dramatically raised test scores at one of California’s lowest-performing schools. Her experience as a school psychologist strengthens her focus on school climate and social-emotional learning. She brings the experience, discipline and resolve that will keep WCCUSD moving in the right direction.
STEPHANIE HERNÁNDEZ-JARVIS | WCCUSD TEACHER
We enthusiastically endorse Stephanie Hernández-Jarvis in her first campaign for WCCUSD School Board.
A current WCCUSD kindergarten teacher and parent, Hernández-Jarvis brings a unique and profound understanding of the needs of educators and families in our district. Her own educational journey through public education at every level—as an immigrant, English learner, and first-generation college student—has informed who she is as a parent, as an educator, and who she will be as a WCCUSD Board Trustee.
Hernández-Jarvis will bring a fresh perspective and a decisive viewpoint to the School Board. She offers a strong focus on education access, social justice, and improving district practices where they matter most: inside each and every classroom across West Contra Costa.
