Sue Rains
For Scotts Valley Unified School Board Member

Occupation:  Parent/Accountant                                            Age:  53

I have lived in Scotts Valley with my husband and sons for over 20 years.  I have been President and Treasurer of the Vine Hill Elementary PTA and Treasurer of both the Scotts Valley Middle School PTA and Scotts Valley High School Falcon Club.  I hold a B.S. in Accounting from San Jose State University and I have over 30 years experience as an accounting professional working for a variety of companies.

My goals are to provide an environment that ensures a top-notch education for every student by building strong ties between the District and Community.  I will work tirelessly to improve communication, safety and social awareness at each of our schools.  I will use my background in finance to work with the Union to find ways to improve teachers’ salaries and retention.  I will work to ensure that the rebuilding of Scotts Valley Middle School is completed in a timely, fiscally responsible, and green manner.

I believe that the School Board must work with students, teachers, and parents to create schools that encourage our students’ academic achievements.  I believe I have the experience and common sense required to lead our district as we strive to showcase the outstanding performance of our students.
