RICHMOND, November 3, 2014 - The Richmond Community Coalition today released its platform of School Board commitments with an emphasis of better communications and improving life skills for students.

“We need to embrace the economic and cultural relations we have with Asia and the world,” said School Trustee candidate Moushtak Estepho. “We need to bring more international culture and business connections into the schools. We have a great school system and wonderful teachers and staff – we just need to help enhance what they’re already doing. A key part of that is using our City’s diversity as a key opportunity to open more doors for our students.”
“Our School Board should not be a silo – City Council and School Board serve the same families, so we should be working more closely together on our culture, arts, sports, international relationships and more,” said School Trustee candidate, Matt Pitcairn. “Another aspect we want to improve is using technology to reduce costs and increase communications between schools and parents. We need to address instances where our children can become victims – like with cyber-bullying. We will hit that hard. Also, we need to be conscious of the need for more efficient communications with parents in the event of serious security breaches.”

School Trustee candidate Jonathan Ho added that giving students more basic financial and life skills training is a priority of the Richmond Community Coalition team. “By giving our children these skills through the years of learning, they will be more ready to deal with the adult world when they graduate. They will be more confident and capable with dealing with the basic personal competencies. Part of our plan is based on drawing the community closer in to the students’ lives by developing more relationships with businesses and other organizations.”

Financial services counsellor, and author of two youth books on financial planning, Paul Lermitte, a Coalition guest at the announcement, noted that providing simple stories and family discussions at home about the importance of saving, spending and managing, students will be much better prepared for their jobs and their new adult lives.

Ho stated, “The bottom line for the Richmond Community Coalition’s Trustee team is that we are as committed to Richmond citizens as families, and we will work together with our Council colleagues – to ensure that Council and the School Board work more closely together on joint cultural, business and training programs and community events.”

The Richmond Community Coalition is committed to making local government more efficient, more accountable and more responsible. The Coalition was established earlier this year to increase voter turnout and encourage City Hall to engage local citizens more in government. Its Board of Directors comprise a wide range of community activists, with long records of community service to Richmond.
