DPAC Executive Nomination: Allison Tredwell

Allison Tredwell has been nominated to the DPAC executive by the Edith Cavell PAC. Her nomination was accepted at our executive meeting on October 11, 2018. In her own words:

Hello, my name is Allison Tredwell. I am currently the DPAC Rep for Edith Cavell Elementary, where I have a daughter in Grade 1, and a son who will start kindergarten in 2019. I began attending DPAC meetings around May 2018, during the Boundary Catchment Review. It was at this time that I realized that all these potential changes had been in the works for months, and that parents have the opportunity to have a voice with the VSB through DPAC.

I am interested in facilities and planning (such as seismic mitigation, boundary catchment review and the potential policy changes that may be involved), sustainability and environmental impact, emergency preparedness and response (including reunification processes, and fire/earthquake/lockdown procedures/drills). I am also interested in increasing inclusiveness in schools, and I fully support SOGI education.

I currently work as a TTOC (teacher, teaching on call) for the Richmond School District. I TOC at the secondary level, for almost all subjects, but my background is in physical geography and biology.

I think of myself as a logical, organized person, who appreciates honest and direct constructive criticism. I hope that these traits, as well as my perspective as a TTOC and parent, will be an asset to DPAC. I’m committed to regularly attending both general and executive meetings, as well as volunteering for other committees/events as needed. Thank you for considering me for DPAC Exec.

An electronic ballot was sent to PACs following this meeting with voting to close on October 31, 2018 at 7pm. If you are the DPAC Rep or Chair of a PAC and you have not received the ballot please contact us.
