Janae's ballot statement to voters:
I am proud of our fierce, yet quaint rural school district. We’ve suffered wildfires and pandemic, and find ourselves stronger and more cohesive than ever before. Piner Olivet Union School District (POUSD) is the heart and soul of our community. We have great teachers, staff, and administrators, and the most wonderful, resilient students. It’s all about the kids.
It has been an honor to serve as POUSD Board Trustee. I served six years on the Measure L Oversight Committee, following a term as Olivet Families PTO Secretary, alongside 27 years as a business manager. I also attended CSBA governance training. Piner Olivet Union School District has accomplished much during my tenure: POUSD is the only district in Sonoma County to win the 2022 California State Pivotal Practice Award, a CA Distinguished Schools Program for Instructional Technology; we’ve made significant facility upgrades; we negotiated a competitive salary increase for all staff from 2019-2024; we’ve increased bilingual staff to better serve our Spanish-speaking families; and we’ve reinvigorated our instructional programs to meet the demands of 21st century learning.
My three daughters attended POUSD, which prepared them for UC Berkeley, UC Santa Barbara, UCLA Graduate School, and Cornell Law, respectively. I credit the strong early foundation they received at POUSD for much of their academic success.

I respectfully ask for your vote to continue to work for our students.
