Carrie Bercic - School Board Trustee
Carrie Bercic has established herself as an ardent public education advocate, a champion of cooperation, and someone who delivers results for Vancouver students.
From the time her own children entered schools, until after their graduation, Carrie has been involved in public education as a volunteer, parent leader, and advocate. She volunteered in her children’s classrooms and school libraries, and sat on the Parent Advisory Council (PAC) Executive, from 1998 to 2014.
Through her decades of experience in the school system, Carrie saw firsthand how classroom resources were reduced and clawed back. Frustrated at seeing the VSB being forced to cut essential programs, eliminate critical staff positions, and put off maintenance to school buildings, Carrie was motivated to take action. Since 2014 she has attended every board, committee, and special meeting at the Vancouver School Board (VSB) as well as being actively involved in Parent Advocacy Network for Public Education (PAN), Families Against Cuts to Education (FACE), and Friends of the School Library (FOSL).
