In addition to my passion for developing and implementing student-first programs and resources, it is my unmatched experience, district knowledge and history volunteering for and working in collaboration with the CVUSD on numerous policies and committees that positions me to be an asset to the Board of Education (BOE) and an effective board member.
As an education advocate and CVUSD parent leader for two decades — two of my sons have graduated from the CVUSD, a third is currently attending — I have a proven track record of fostering collaborative communication between parents and the BOE through cultivating strong relationships with all CVUSD stakeholders —the Board, superintendent, district, administration, teachers and parents. In this area, I have the unique ability to utilize these relationships to not just talk about solutions, but to get things done.
I have served on both PTSAs and school site councils at the elementary, middle and high school levels and have held numerous district-wide leadership roles, including my current role as chairperson for District Advisory Council (DAC). In my position as executive director for the Conejo Schools Foundation (selected as the 2017 California Nonprofit of the Year), which I’ve held for more than a decade, I’ve directly contributed to the development and implementation of programs such as Cash for Classrooms, All District Music Festival, parent education workshops in conjunction with BreakThrough and a separate WASC-accredited summer school program to support our student needs here in the Conejo.
I’ve gained additional experience in the district through participation on budget, homework and Career Technical Education (CTE) committees, the Measure I Campaign Steering Committee and the Chamber of Commerce Education and Workforce Development Committee.
For my commitment and dedication to improving and supporting the CVUSD’s educational goals, the Thousand Oaks Acorn featured me as one of its top 10 community members who stood out in 2017, stating, “Goldberg has worked tirelessly to bolster fundraising, distribute grants and develop assistance programs. The foundation runs the Cash4ConejoClassrooms program to fund special classroom projects, as well as academic enrichment programs and a parent workshop series. She also helped orchestrate the Cycles for Success program, which provides bikes to underprivileged students.”
