Nancy Treser Osgood

My commitment to education spans a quarter century and encompasses both my professional life and volunteer work. As a 25 year Claremont resident with a Master’s degree in religious education, my qualifications include 14 years volunteering in Claremont schools, service to the Claremont Educational Foundation (CEF) and Claremont High Soccer Boosters, and as current Chairperson of the southwest United States for the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). The dedication of our District families, faculty, and staff inspired me to seek election to serve our diverse community of students.

To paraphrase the Claremont Unified School District Mission Statement, each student should be equipped academically and socially to thrive in a challenging and diverse world. Working with you as a School Board member I pledge to:

-Explore options to maximize the impact of District surplus property funds on the learning environment
-Enhance communication between the Board and faculty & staff
-Nurture relationships with the Claremont After School Programs, Claremont Educational Foundation, Claremont Chamber of Commerce, and other local service clubs
-Strengthen partnerships with the Claremont Colleges and other Southern California universities through my work experience at Pomona College and Claremont Graduate University.

Please vote for Nancy Treser Osgood on November 5.
