Jacqueline (Jackie) Ku for
Duarte School Board
I am running for Duarte Unified School Board because I believe all students should have fair access to a high quality education. As a former math teacher from Duarte High, I have first hand experience working with students and educators within the Duarte Unified School District. I know I can represent the voices of our students, educators, and parents within our community to create a true partnership to enhance our school district. I believe I can offer the Duarte Unified School Board a ground level perspective of the challenges that students and educators have faced especially with regards to distance learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As the project manager for the UCLA Mathematics Project, I work with educators who provide professional development to public schools within the Los Angeles area, including Los Angeles Unified School District. I have experience creating and managing contracted and grant funded budgets. Collectively my experiences allow me to bring my passion as an educator, while maintaining the financial responsibility needed as a Duarte Unified School Board member. I look forward to working together to strengthen and empower our community. I will transparent and passionate leadership. I would be honored to have your vote.
