My name is Lori Metschan and live in Black Diamond, Washington.  My husband and I have five children whom all have attended Black Diamond Elementary, Thunder Mountain Middle School and graduated from Enumclaw High School.  I have been involved in the district for many years.  I was a Classified Substitute for ten years and also volunteered in the schools as well.

I am seeking a second term as Director for District 4.  It would be my pleasure to continue to serve on the Enumclaw School Board to represent the community of Black Diamond.  My goal is to ensure equity for all students in the district and provide new insight as well for the district that I serve.

Our children deserve more. The Enumclaw school district can do better. Less than sixty percent of our children are meeting the basic academic standards. We must focus on their success in order to prepare them for life ahead. Whatever their future might be, higher education, skilled trades, or any other career choice, it builds upon their skill with math, science, and language. Skills that are fact based, and not dependent upon how they might ‘feel.’

If the school board is to guide students through the learning process, the board must work with the teachers, administrators, and parents, serving the community with curriculum and academic transparency. Students’ attendance must improve. Over 30% currently fail to regularly attend. This is unacceptable.

Our community has trusted this district with our children and our tax dollars. We can do better. We must do better. Please vote for a better future…for our kids.

As someone who is deeply involved in this city, I can say that I love Enumclaw and the people who live here. Enumclaw absolutely deserves the best from its schools.

Let’s take a hard look at our budget and allocate our resources responsibly and transparently. Let’s listen to our teachers to get their valuable perspectives on how to make our district the best.  Let’s focus on rigorous academics to prepare students for the real world. No matter what path they choose, I want our students to leave high school with a plan they know how to execute, the confidence to make it happen, and a mastery of basic financial planning and goal setting.

Together, we can take our district to the next level. I will listen to every stakeholder and advocate for concrete, measurable solutions to every challenge and opportunity we face.
