Farah Theissen
For Scotts Valley Unified School Board Member

Occupation: Vice President Operations                                 Age: 47

As a parent, community volunteer, and VP of Operations for a local business, I have the enthusiasm and experience to ensure our district’s schools are places that cultivate the educational growth of all our children in a safe and secure environment.    I have always taken an active role in my children’s education, and with one child still in elementary school, I am personally invested in this district.  As a member of Save Our Schools Scotts Valley, I worked tirelessly to pass both the Measure K Parcel Tax Initiative and Measure A School Bond.  

I have raised money for school programs and volunteer in my son’s classroom, because I want to stay connected to the school community.  I believe our district should keep all families informed through all channels of communication and I will make this a priority if elected.  

In the thriving business I run with my husband, I am fiscally responsible, “solutions-based” manager, familiar with large budgets, who always looks ahead to ensure goals are met.  

If elected, working together with teachers, administrators and families, please trust that I will always put the education and safety of our children first. I would be honored to have your vote.
