Experienced Educator to Run for Jeffco School Board
Golden – With the future of Jeffco students at stake, an experienced educator has entered the race for the Jeffco School Board. Alison “Ali” Lasell, a teacher and mom of two Jeffco students, has filed with the Secretary of State to run in District 3, the seat currently held by outgoing Board member Jill Fellman. Fellman is not seeking re-election.
According to Lasell, “Jeffco has always had a powerful reputation among educators and among families. I want Jeffco to continue to be an excellent place for students to learn, teachers to educate, and community members to live, work and play. I think my education expertise will be a benefit to the District and the School Board.”
A 25 year veteran of Adams 12 School District, Ali has been a leader in her field. Along with teaching middle school science and math, Ali has broad experience from writing and implementing science curriculum, working as a member of her district’s cohort team which included testing and implementing a new system for teacher evaluations, to coaching girls and boys basketball and softball. Her knowledge, experience and passion for Jeffco Schools will benefit our community.
“Ali Lasell and I both want all of Jeffco’s students to receive the highest quality education. She believes in collaboration, respect, strong fiscal management, accountability, transparency and thoughtful long-range planning. And when there is a difference of opinion, we always have respectful conversations. Ali will make an excellent school board member,” said Jill Fellman current Jeffco School Board member.
Former Mayor of Arvada, Ken Fellman and Former Principal of Columbine High School, Frank DeAngelis will serve as Co-Chairs of Ali’s campaign.
