Last updated 5/3/2022 at 10:18pm
It is a privilege to announce my candidacy to run for a fourth term on the West Orange-Cove CISD School Board and continue my commitment to our students, faculty, staff, and community.
My enthusiasm and passion for service to this school district community is because I believe that collaboration between the teachers, parents, and administrators is vitally important in creating the best possible schools for our children. In WOCCISD, we have a "platform to excellence" for students to achieve in the graduation goals of College, Technical Trade, Military, and Career Readiness. So, I strongly encourage "positive
parent involvement" in your students' classrooms, extra-curricular activities, and your community.

My son, Jared K. Dupree, is a Class of 2017 honor graduate from West Orange-Stark High School and a Class of 2021 graduate from The University of Texas at Austin. I encouraged and supported him to achieve his best in the classroom, extra-curricular activities, and organizations. He is currently employed with the City of Houston Police Department in the 255th Class of Police Officer Cadets. A good education is the key to
preparing our children for a challenging future.
Like many other public school district boards in Orange County, I have had the pleasure of being a "strong team member" to new and improved school programs, facilities, and services provided for our students, parents, educators, and administration.
In WOCCISD, we continue to look at new ways and technologies to be competitive and innovative in our schools within the financial budget set forth and be accountable to the financial responsibility of our service to children.
Our school district has strong leadership, and we are continuing in a positive direction to achieve our mission and current strategic goals set forth by our Superintendent and Administration, which is "always doing what's best for kids".
I appreciate the Community, Administration, Faculty, Staff, Parents, and Students and ask for your vote to be re-elected as a School Board Trustee in the West Orange-Cove Consolidated Independent School District.
