By Sharon K. Sobotta
With nine years under her belt as an Acalanes Union High School District Board member, Nancy Kendzierski is taking the reins as president for her third time and she's excited to keep the momentum going. Kendrzierski says it's important to keep the district's steadfast student centered approach alive and well while focusing on academics, holistic support, parental and community partnerships and financial stability amidst economic uncertainties. "(We) should continue to broaden and enhance (the district's) curriculum to reflect the complex world we live (in) and continue to provide significant support for student well-being," Kendrzierski says. Although COVID amplified the need to provide holistic support to students, Kendzeierski acknowledges that stress has impacted high school students in the district for a long time. The board has taken note of that and supported and voted in favor of measures ranging from the most recent addition of wellness centers on all campuses to adjusted school calendars to block scheduling.

Orinda School Parcel Tax

At the same time as it is asking Orinda taxpayers for a parcel tax, the Orinda Union School District Board of Trustees continues to show its disdain for those same taxpayers and other members of the public. The OUSD has rejected my requests that members of the public be allowed to comment via zoom at board meetings rather than have to appear in person, because of the difficulty that attendance in person poses for many due to family obligations and because of the three widespread viruses plaguing our community. Also, the OUSD continues to refuse to allow members of the public to see, prior to each meeting, the written comments on agenda items submitted by other members of the public
