Janice Caton announced this week she will run again for school trustee representing the city of Courtenay. As a parent of three boys who all attended and graduated from SD71 she brings with her years of experience both at the school and district level. For the past three years, Janice has also been SD71 Comox Valley’s representative to the BC School Trustees’ Association provincial council.With the government promising “bold” reforms on education, it is not only important that school districts, teachers and parents be consulted; but that the government needs to fully fund those changes and school trustees need to continue to advocate for funding and flexibility to provide students and staff the resources and support needed to be successful.As a trustee Janice will continue to strongly advocate for sustainable and adequate funding for public education in order that we can move forward and continue to provide a positive, safe and stable learning environment for students, staff, and the community.Janice feels strongly that the role of a school trustee is one of public/accountability, consultation and transparency that supports public education and the needs of the community and it students.You can reach Janice Caton at 250-338-6858 if you have any questions.— Janice Caton
