Campeau provided the following statement for the 2013 Local Voters' Pamphlet in Thurston County:
"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."

About the district
- See also: Olympia School District, Washington
Olympia outperforms the state average for higher education achievement but lags behind median income and poverty rate. The percentage of city residents over 25 years old with undergraduate degrees (43.3%) exceeds the state average (31.4%). The 2010 U.S. Census calculated Olympia's median income at $52,371 while the state median income was $58,890. Olympia had a poverty rate of 15.8% in the 2010 U.S. Census while the state rate was 12.5%.
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.
