San Mateo County, CA June 8, 2010 Election
Smart Voter Political Philosophy for Anne Campbell

Candidate for
Superintendent of School District; County of San Mateo

This information is provided by the candidate

A vigorous democracy and a vibrant economy require strong public schools. All our children should have access to the opportunities excellent schools provide.

As San Mateo County Superintendent of Schools I will work to ensure the San Mateo County Office of Education provides timely and helpful support to local school districts. I will focus on:

  • Closing the achievement gap

  • Achieving school funding reform

  • Expanding access to quality preschool

  • Preparing all students for success in the 21st Century

I am well-qualified to serve as San Mateo County Superintendent, having devoted the past 35 years to our local public schools as a teacher, counselor, middle school principal, and superintendent. I have worked in three different San Mateo County school districts, including San Mateo-Foster City, Belmont-Redwood Shores, and Portola Valley, so I have experience meeting the needs of students from different backgrounds and an understanding of the issues confronting revenue limit and basic aid districts.

My fourteen years as a superintendent have given me an appreciation for the challenges facing San Mateo County's local school districts as well as an awareness of the importance of relationship-building to meet those challenges. I am eager to work together with the San Mateo County Board of Education, the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, our local school officials, community leaders, and staff to ensure San Mateo County schools successfully educate all our students for the 21st Century.
