Election 2014: Dyck to seek sixth term

School District 33: Veteran school trustee and former board chair Silvia Dyck says she will seek another term in office.

Veteran school trustee and former board chair Silvia Dyck says she will seek another term in office.

In a statement released late Thursday, Dyck said she was eager to serve her sixth term on the board.

She said the Chilliwack school district has much to be proud of, including the construction of three new schools.

“This was but one of the successes of the past Boards of Education in delivering three new innovative learning environments for our staff, students and community,” she said.

In addition, the district has launched a special education review, and introduced early French immersion.

“Success is achieved by working together,” said Dyck. “Our students and community deserve no less than our full commitment to work collaboratively and collegially in striving for the best education possible for all of our Chilliwack students.

“Future challenges are the renewal of our Strategic Plan , continuing the implementation of the recommendations of the Special Education Review and preserving  a broad  liberal arts education for our students which may be challenged by a government that seems to believe we are educating workers, not citizens,” Dyck added.
