PRIORITIES

Curriculum Standards

Promoting a focus on the study of core subjects

Upholding high standards to promote competitiveness on the world stage

A good curriculum will produce quality consistent outcomes in core subjects and build a solid knowledgebase for students. Students should be equipped with effective and well rounded analytical and critical thinking skills, not having ideological paradigms constructed for them.

Academic Excellence

Ensuring the greatest opportunity for student success for all learning abilities

Supporting measurable outcomes for core subject areas

Solid testing and reporting methods are the best way to provide the clarity and measurable outcomes necessary to assess a child’s success in education. They also provide the most accurate and effective means to keep teachers, schools and school boards accountable to continually reach for greater improvement and effectiveness.

Parental Rights

Championing a parent’s right to direct their children’s education as well as make decisions regarding their health and safety.

Advocating the importance of fully informed and involved parents in all aspects of their children’s education out of the conviction that education is a partnership between parents and teachers

Parents are the primary care givers and educators of their children. They are the experts where their children are concerned. As such, they are the best protectors of their children and will naturally be the best suited to care for them. Schools exist to provide a service to parents and derive their authority to educate children from parents.

Parents have the legal and inherently moral right to choose the kind of education their child receives, which includes all extracurricular activities. It is not only a right, but also a necessity, that parents be informed about what their children are learning inside and outside of the classroom.

Your Candidate

Darlene Clarke

Darlene has been a resident of Spruce Grove for 20 years. She has been happily married to her husband Brian for 44 years. Together they have raised three children and now enjoy nine grandchildren.

Darlene brings 22 years of business management experience. In raising three children, Darlene was heavily involved in school councils and chaired various school sub-committees. Her initial decision to run as a School Board Trustee stemmed from being a concerned grandparent. That same motivation continues to drive her today.

Darlene has served in the role as School Board Trustee for the last four years and has greatly valued the opportunity to advocate for both parents’ rights to direct their children’s education and for a high-level accountable education to be provided to all Parkland County students.

Darlene looks forward to continuing to promote these values over the next four years.
