"My name is Stephanie McClintock. I am running for BGSD's Position #5. As a 15 year resident and parent of 2 middle school age boys, I believe we owe our children a quality education for a successful future. With a Bachelor's Degree in Business, 10 years in Human Resources and 3 years working at a local private school I bring a fresh perspective to the board.
Making fiscally responsible decisions and being accountable to the taxpayer is critical. The needs of the classroom should be top priority. This can be done with better stewardship of funds.
Your vote is appreciate."

What was at stake?
Incumbent Monty Anderson ran for re-election in District 1. Districts 3 and 5 have new board members as current members John Idsinga and Steve Pagel did not file for re-election. In District 3, newcomers Mitchell Taylor and Jim Pegoraro sought election to the board. Anderson and District 5 candidate McClintock did not face opposition on the general election ballot.
Battle Ground School Board members will deal with ongoing concerns about funding as well as a state audit of the board's buyout of former Superintendent Shonny Bria in June 2013. District voters narrowly passed a four-year tax levy to fund instructional programs and maintenance after threats of dissolving the district. The Washington State Auditor's Office is currently conducting an investigation into a secret buyout of Bria that was only disclosed after she left office.
About the district
Battle Ground outperforms the rest of Washington based on median income and poverty levels while lagging behind the state average for higher education achievement. The 2010 U.S. Census found the median income in Battle Ground was $59,723 while the state median income was $58,890. The city's poverty rate was 11% compared to the state's 12.5% poverty rate. The percentage of city residents over 25 years old with undergraduate degrees (16.6%) was lower than the state average (31.4%).
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 100.0%. Each column will add up to 100.0% after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.
