NAME: Carol McCormick
OCCUPATION: Community Volunteer
Prudent financial management, fiscal accountability and transparency in decision-making are part of my comprehensive experience as a community leader in Ladera Ranch that I will bring to CUSD.
My priority as trustee is to provide the necessary technology at all schools to enable innovative learning for every student. Achieving this requires creative partnerships with businesses and communities to bridge funding gaps imposed by Sacramento. My service on the board of the CUSD Foundation and within the Ladera community proves my ability to positively engage all parties to achieve results.
Having worked in college admissions I recognize the value of broad, rigorous academic preparation and opportuntiies for fulfilling activities. CUSD is an education leader and I am commited to enhancing its reputation for excellence by protecting outstanding programs and promoting advances in instruction and curriculum to meet the needs of all students.
I am the proud parent of two Tesoro graduates and a senior at San Juan Hills. I have volunteered in classrooms and the school office and served in leadership roles in PTA, booster clubs, community sports and scouting.
I am fully committed to serving the children, parents and members of our school communities.
Vote McCormick for CUSD.
