School Trustee Candidate: Rose Zitko acclaimed in – Kettle Valley North

School District 51: Zitko, Rose acclaimed as school trustee

Rose Zitko

My name is Rose Zitko and I have been acclaimed as your SD51 school trustee for Area E Kettle Valley North. I have lived in the Boundary all my life and I have two daughters now attending BCSS. My husband and I have both agreed to raise our family here where they can benefit from living in a small town by having nature at our back door, connecting with their community and schools that offer smaller class sizes and a much more personal atmosphere.

But where there are benefits there are also challenges such as the large geographic area within our school district and declining enrolment. With 12 years of experience of being involved in our schools and other organizations for children we have found how to come up with creative solutions to overcome these challenges. I feel with my experience of living in the West Boundary I can bring that view to the board table of how we can work together and collaborate with administrators, teachers, parents and students to be able to give the best possible education for our children.

I feel very passionate for all the students in our district and I will do everything I can to advocate for them so that they receive as many opportunities as they need to help prepare them for life after they graduate. I believe that great communication leads to success, so as your voice at the Board of Education table please feel free to contact me at any time with your questions or concerns.

Thank you.
