Hello, my name is Kulvir Mann and I am seeking re-election as School Board Trustee of the North Vancouver Board of Education. I have been a resident of the North Shore for over twenty years and am a parent to two children currently enrolled in the NVSD.
I have served on my children’s school PAC and on the North Vancouver District PAC. I wanted to continue to do more for students and the community so ran for school board in 2018.
Currently Board Chair, I have served the NVSD community as Trustee for the past 4 years. It has been a real privilege to be a Trustee and advocate for all students in NVSD.
I believe all students should have a sense of place and belonging regardless of their ability, ethnicity or gender – including access to inclusive and safe learning environments with resources and programs available that allow all students to thrive.
I am dedicated and committed to the success of all students. I visited all 32 schools in NVSD and have made meaningful connections with administrators, teachers, support staff, parents and students. I have also established respectful, professional working relationships with NVSD Senior Executives and staff which are important when making decisions regarding budget, policies and advocating for funds from the Ministry of Education.
I have also made an incredible impact in the community with my volunteer work with many organizations as a board or committee member.
My platform with continued advocacy, collaboration and building relationships
I want to continue to be a champion for all kids and have been a highly effective advocate for the NVSD as Board Chair and Trustee. I am a respected and valued team member who has built positive relationships within NVSD, partner groups, host nations and community organizations.
