Bio:

Rob Paynter is a manager in the provincial government’s natural resource sector and the parent of two amazing kids currently in elementary and middle school in School District 61. Rob and his wife Kris play active roles in their school communities: working on school parent advisory committees and band associations, organizing and helping out at school events and supporting extracurricular activities and clubs. Together they established their school’s safe and caring committee to contribute to a welcoming and supportive learning environment for all students.

Rob has been a consistent figure at School Board meetings for the past three years. During that time he has presented to Trustees on such topics as developing a district level anti-bullying policy, strategic planning, trustee and senior administration expense reporting, increasing access to suicide awareness and education training to middle and secondary school students and concussion education and awareness training for staff and coaches. He has provided input on annual budgets, policy development and review processes and for the past two years, served on the district’s Community and Culture Subcommittee. Recognizing a wide range of opportunities for improving our public school system, particularly in the areas of advocacy, accountability and community engagement, Rob is seeking your support to play a more direct role in school district decision making.

Why should I vote for you?

With children in SD61 schools I understand current school conditions and will bring a parent’s perspective to School Board deliberations. Experienced in consensus negotiation, strategic planning and policy analysis, I’ll focus on Board effectiveness, accountability and community engagement. I’m ready to do the hard work to support every student’s success.

 

Your main goal if elected?

Increased accountability is my top priority. Achieving this includes creating a finance committee for the $200 Million annual budget and a strategic plan to guide future decision-making. It also means fewer in camera meetings and engaging parents, staff and students to learn their concerns, share information and develop meaningful solutions.
