My name is April Berg and I am running for School Board Director of the Everett School District. Thank you for visiting my page.
Our family has lived in Snohomish County for over 20 years. Currently my children attend the University of Washington, Western Washington University, Jackson High School and Heatherwood Middle School.
I have years of experience working with schools as a parent volunteer and community member. In 2014 I became a School Board Director for the Edmonds School District. In 2004 I created an Elementary School Chess Club when my son began playing competitive chess. This lead me to become a member of the Washington State Elementary Chess Championship (WSECC) board of directors. My experience began when I was elected the first African American, fifth woman and youngest student body president in the history of Oregon State University. Soon after I was appointed to the Oregon State Board of Higher Education.
I will bring a perspective of inclusion to the School. I've had the opportunity to work collaboratively with many diverse communities, these include communities of color, diverse socioeconomic communities, students that are first generation, and the LGBTQ+ community.
As a member of the Everett School Board I will work to provide Every Student with a Learning Environment that fosters Educational Excellence.
