Susan Meek, a candidate for Douglas County School Board director for District A, which covers western Highlands Ranch, brings six years of experience with the school district.
Meek was employed with DCSD from 2005-11, during which she created the Apple Awards teacher recognition program, developed the Digital Educator Program for teacher professional development and launched the Girls and Women in Sports Luncheon. She was a spokeswoman for the district from 2009-11, and she ran for the school board in 2011.
Meek served as president of Eldorado Elementary School's parent teacher organization and chair of the school accountability committee at Northridge Elementary School. Her two children attended the Highlands Ranch schools and graduated from ThunderRidge High School.
“Given my passion for public education and serving,” Meek said, “I really can't imagine a better volunteer role for me at this time in my life.”
Meek, who was born and raised in Florida, double-majored in international business and management, with a minor in French, at James Madison University, and received an MBA in business economics and public policy from George Washington University.
Meek is the director of strategic engagement and communications at the Colorado Association of School Boards. Her role includes working with administrators and school boards across the state.
Her professional background and volunteer experience prompted her to run for school board.
“Serving on the board has always been something I knew I would end up doing at some point in my life,” she said. “I am absolutely passionate about public education.”
Her priorities for the district include: ensuring safe and welcoming schools with stable teaching and learning environments, ensuring equitable learning opportunities for all students and ensuring the focus is on all kids.
She plans on spending the next few months engaging with the community.
“I'm certainly encouraging everyone to reach out and share their views of where they think the district should be headed,” Meek said.
