Campaign themes


Poletti provided the following statement for the 2013 Local Voters' Pamphlet in Clark County:[3]

"Our district ranks 110th in the state while bordering Battle Ground is 56th. Some on this school board believe that our district is doing just fine. I disagree. I believe we can and must do better by:

  • Expanding our alternative learning experiences, providing greater accommodation for parents who favor approaches to education other than the standard brick-and-mortar school model.
  • Eliminating the 'One Size Fits All' curriculum program and creating options for different learning styles.
  • Promoting parent participation and innovation at every opportunity, including charter schools.

My name is Dan Poletti. If you agree...please vote for me."

Note: The above quote is from the candidate's website, which may include some typographical or spelling errors.

What was at stake?

Julie Bocanegra sought re-election to the District 1 seat against Poletti. Michael Parsons ran for another term on the board without opposition in District 5.

Evergreen Public Schools serves K-12 students in the City of Vancouver. Vancouver is the county seat of Clark County, which is situated along the Columbia River in southwestern Washington.[4]


Vancouver lags behind the rest of Washington based on median income, poverty levels and higher education achievement. The 2010 U.S. Census found the median income in Vancouver was $50,387 while the state median income was $58,890. The city's poverty rate was 15.5% compared to the state's 12.5% poverty rate. The percentage of city residents over 25 years old with undergraduate degrees (23.5%) was lower than the state average (31.4%).[4]

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin rather than a race. Citizens may report both their race and their place of origin, and as a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table may exceed 100 percent.[6][7]
