Note regarding Covid-19: No greater weight of obligation has faced those serving on our county and the nation's school boards in our lifetimes that how best to balance the education of our children against their health and that of their families during a time of pandemic. The decisions made by local school districts are in part autonomous, but also the product of county, state and federal agencies. We therefore ask the understanding of all voters: we must all respect that the positions of every single candidate for school board are rooted in the well being of our children for whom they accept this most solemn responsibility. The teachers and staffs deserve nothing less than our thanks and our support.

Chiany Dri


Candidate, Ojai USD, Area 4
