Shari O’Neill has announced her bid for Coquitlam school trustee.
A mother of two children in School District 43, O'Neill has been the parent education coordinator for the District Parent Advisory Committee and involved in committees such as the SD43 Aboriginal Advisory Committee, SD43 Enchantment Project and a member and ambassador for the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce.
Among her issues are support for student mental health, and improving education and awareness around cyberbullying and social media. O’Neill is also concerned about wait lists for psycho-educational assessments for SD43 students with learning challenges.
“Parents should never have to pay out of pocket for an assessment but I’m hearing on the doorstep that some have because they simply can not wait for the school district to do them.”
