Campaign themes


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

"The Olympia School District is a great school district and I would be honored to continue to be your representative on the Board of Directors. We have seen many changes in education in the last few years, including an emphasis on differentiated teaching (teaching to the level of each child), implementing a new teacher and principal evaluation system, and working towards a common-core curriculum. My focus for the next few years will be on reducing class sizes while providing classroom support for those students needing extra help in achieving grade-level goals. I appreciate the support that is provided to our students from the Olympia community and look forward to continuing our partnership in the education of our children."

What was at stake?
