There is probably no elected position that has a greater direct impact on our families and communities than that of director for our school districts. These individuals have a profound impact on the lives of all of our children, helping to build knowledge, skills and abilities that will help our students achieve their full potential in life.
This year, we are especially fortunate to have the opportunity to elect Cassandra Sage as our Lake Washington School District director for District 3. Cassandra has been an outstanding leader and advocate for education for more than 20 years. With a degree in early childhood education, experience owning and operating a preschool and active service to LWSD that resulted in her receiving four Golden Acorn awards, she is the clear choice for District 3.
Cassandra is a strong advocate for ensuring the needs of ALL students are met. She will work for more inclusion of special education students, expanded vocational education opportunities and greater assistance with college preparation for those going on to university studies. Endorsed by retiring LWSD board director Nancy Bernard — who has served as LWSD director for District 3 for the past 20 years and is not seeking re-election this year — Cassandra has also been endorsed by former LWSD directors Jackie Pendergrass, Doug Eglington and Johanna Palmer. She is also endorsed by the Lake Washington Education Association, the labor union that represents educators in the LWSD.
Cassandra Sage is the right choice for our students and communities!
