The contest for the Culver City Unified School Board is even more crowded now that two more have signed in; Lauren Jagnow and Tiffany Spellman have declared their respective candidacies for the November election. There are two seats coming open, and both incumbents – Anne Allaire and Dr. Kelly Kent – are running to remain in their current positions.
Spellman and Jagnow will be joining PRCS Commissioner Paula Amazola and former CCUSD School Board member Scott Zeidman in the race.
Jagnow has been a parent leader and student advocate in the district for the past seven years. At El Rincon Elementary, she has served on the PTA board for the past six years, most recently completing a two-year term as site president. She also is a member of the Culver City Council PTA, currently serving as the executive vice president. In addition, she is a member of the district’s Equity Advisory Council, the Safe Routes to School Committee, the Master Plan Core Planning Group, and El Rincon’s Inclusion Committee. She was named the Volunteer of the Year at El Rincon in the 2018-19 school year. Jagnow has also served on Homeowners Association at Tara Hill, working with budgets, facilities and staff.
Spellman offers “Culver City faces the challenges of distance learning and the COVID-19 pandemic, it is crucial that we work together to ensure the health and safety of students, families, the community, and district personnel. Whether we remain at home or are in the classroom, I am dedicated to facilitating the changes needed to ensure all students have access to relevant, personalized, and forward-thinking educational opportunities.”
All six candidates will speak on August 22, 2020, starting at 1 pm. To join to the meeting, contact [email protected]
