Amy “Yamamoto'” Callahan, a trustee candidate for Ventura Unified School District Governing Board for Area 3 who believes our community supports public education and believes our district will grow and reinvent education as we know it during this time.

Equity and Access

Together, we can ensure our scholars have equitable opportunities to high-quality teaching and learning experiences that provide 1:1 continuous distance and hybrid in-person tools, resources and social emotional supports; from access to devices and connectivity to equitable representation and progress as outlined in the VUSD Learning Continuity Plan as we reinvent and support public education through the current COVID pandemic.

Social Justice, Diversity, Inclusion

Together, we can ensure our scholars have a public school education experience that ensures all students are literate by the end of third grade, are afforded college and career pathways, and whereby social justice/cultural proficiency training, along with ethnic studies graduation requirements are reflected in the district priorities and organizational culture as we reinvent and support public education through the current COVID pandemic.

Community and Collective Impact

Together, we can ensure our scholars have a #Ventura Strong community that continues to come together to collaborate, partner and support a collective impact approach toward addressing continuous learning with a focus on pupil learning loss, meaningful outreach to our parents and families, and high-quality teaching and learning as we reinvent and support public education through the current COVID pandemic.
