A retired teacher, Donna Pence has the background to help prepare our schools in District 25 for the future. Donna states that cuts to education were severe and she will fight for commonsense solutions to make sure your children and grandchildren receive the quality education they have the right to.
Donna's relationships with educators in the 10 public school districts in our region will help her get things done for children. She is involved with Idaho Education Network, promoting online virtual class offerings to enable our rural school districts to offer a variety of advanced course offerings. This will help your children and grandchildren who live in rural areas get the same level of education as students in metropolitan areas. Donna will work to bring more technical training programs to our high schools and link those programs with community colleges like College of Southern Idaho to prepare students for good jobs.
During her time in the Legislature, Donna served on the Idaho State School for the Deaf and Blind Study Committee. She studied the structure of the school and made determinations about where the location of the school should be to benefit the entire community and the students. She also wants to improve efficiency throughout the school districts through shared services in our small districts.
Donna has the experience and training as an educator to continue to fight for the right combination of opportunities for your children and grandchildren. It's too important to our children's future to allow corners to be cut on their education.
