Welcome, and thank you for visiting my campaign website.
My name is Robb Vaules, and I am running for the Scottsdale Unified School District Board. I am a Scottsdale District graduate and the Father of an SUSD student. I live in Scottsdale with my Wife and Son, work for a national telemedicine practice, and serve on the Arizona Center for Disability Law board of directors.
I was recently named a 2022 Save Our Schools candidate for my pro-public education stance. #PublicSchoolProud
My motivation for running for this position is that I am a parent of a special education student in the district, and my wife and I find it very frustrating to receive the services needed for our son. The solution to this situation isn’t a matter of money, more of the need to listen to parents of students on educational plans as to how the district can better communicate and serve this constituency. More efficient and effective use of district resources within this program will help every child in the SUSD.
Between 2016 and 2018, I was a substitute teacher in the Scottsdale district after one of my Son's teachers described how hard it was to find substitute teachers for special education classrooms. I have spent time on several campuses in mainstream and special education classrooms. The work was challenging but rewarding, and while I don’t assume to be an expert on everything in this district, it did give me an appreciation of the challenges faced daily by all SUSD staff.
I am also concerned about the rise of attacks on education, especially on our teachers and the books they assign for reading. Book bans attack free speech and deprives our students of the tools they need to develop critical thinking skills. Teachers are professionals we should trust with the education of our students, and I support them and will advocate for them if I am elected.
