The Poway Unified School District is an award-winning school district, with recognition at the state and national levels. 

Although teachers and staff continue to provide an excellent education for our students, the current dynamics of the school board could negatively impact that in the near future. 

It is our mission to see the PUSD Board of Education function at the level of professionalism and excellence our district deserves.

With our endorsement of COOPER and PATEL,  we encourage you to be a supporter. Click on the CONTACT US button below to learn more.

The goals of the Coalition for Effective School Board Leadership, a broad-based group of community members, are to identify, vet, endorse, and support candidates for the November election.  

We are proud to announce our endorsement of

Debra Cooper


Darshana Patel

based on their positive character, demonstrated ability to build consensus, and willingness to work strategically with others with the focus on what is best for children and education within PUSD.
