Foundation director announces bid for school board seat
Jon Schumacher, executive director of the Saint Anthony Park Community Foundation, has announced his candidacy for the St. Paul Public Schools Board of Education election in 2015.
Four seats on the school board will be up for election next fall.
A parent of two daughters who attended St. Paul public schools and graduated from Como Park Senior High School, Schumacher said he’s been involved in many aspects of the schools. His work in “community and consensus building” with the community foundation over the last 15 years would benefit the district, he said.
“St. Paul has great students, parents, teachers, staff, principals and administrators,” he said. “Now is the time to find new ways to work together to deliver on the promise of a world-class education for all of our students.”
