Redwood City School Board 2020

Alisa MacAvoy

Dear Friends,

I ran unopposed for the November 2020 election for the Redwood City School District, Trustee Area 1 so I will continue to serve our great community for another four years without the need for an election. I am now able to fully concentrate on the work ahead for the good of our students, families, staff and community.

We have accomplished a lot during my 12 year tenure with the Redwood City School District. This includes offering school choice, increasing academic achievement for students, receiving many awards of excellence, and enhancing relationships with our teachers, staff, families, students, community members, and local businesses.

My priorities continue to be:

  • Students First: Provide engaging, enriching educational programs for all students so they reach their full potential, even during this pandemic and distant learning.
  • Strong Finances: Seek out local funding in addition to State and Federal funding for our students and ensure a balanced budget each year.
  • Community Engagement: Ensure transparency, accountability, and open communication with all stakeholders.

This pandemic and recent protests have highlighted many inequities in our community and have reinforced my desire to combat them. We still have much to do together. I promise to continue to work hard every day. I am always available to listen to your ideas and collaborate with you on how we can provide a more inclusive, sustainable, caring community and a high-quality education for all. Together we must rise to the challenge. Our children are our future and deserve the absolute best.
