Julia Renkema has announced her intention to run for the position of school trustee on the Mission School Board.
“Mission is growing, which means our school board needs to work with the District of Mission to ensure that our education services are ready to respond to our increased population,” she said.
Renkema, said she wants to work to “ensure that we have a good relationship with the school board, teachers, support staff and parents to deliver the best possible education for our students.”
She also said work needs to be done to make sure preschool age children have space in as many local elementary schools as possible, so they are more likely to transition to the Mission public school system.
Renkema said she will “listen to all sides and do my own due diligence to contribute to decision making discussions.”
