SHAUNNA ELIAS

DISTRICT 2

Shaunna is Glendora's advocate! She stands for parents' rights, advocates for teachers, and will work to restore trust, transparency, and unity to Glendora. She is committed to getting Glendora Schools back to academic excellence.

This 14 year Glendora resident is a working mother of two and a proud part of a law enforcement family. She is running in one of the most critical elections in Glendora's history...restoring our schools.

She believes the thing that unites all Glendorans is our love for our children and our love for Glendora.

 

She has personally experienced the growing disconnect between our school board and this great community. She watched as parents, citizens, and teachers voiced their concerns to our Board, only to have been met with silence. Glendora is facing a crisis of leadership, and Shaunna Elias is the advocate that will restore leadership to our schools once again.

THIS IS HOW WE RECLAIM OUR SCHOOLS.

THREE SEATS WILL BE UP FOR ELECTION ON THE BOARD OF EDUCATION THIS NOVEMBER.

WHY IT MATTERS.

The Board of Education is responsible for the following:

 

  • Set overall direction of our schools

  • Hold the Superintendent accountable

  • Establish structure and accountability

  • Serve as advocates representing the voice of our community, parents, and children to the broader community and district.

  • And more!

The Board of Education holds the ability to hire and fire the position of District Superintendent. As a result, the Superintendent's vision and agenda is subject to Board approval.

In essence, if you have concerns over the direction of our schools, the rescue mission begins with ensuring the Board of Education represents the values and voices of the people of Glendora.

HOW IT WORKS.

  • Votes are counted based upon the individual districts in which the Board Member runs or represents.

  • You must live in a district zone up for election in order to vote.

  • If you live in a district zone not up for election, you can help by spreading the word and supporting candidates or participate in a recall of the Board representative from your district if applicable.
