Kristine Kraus, Seminole County School Board District 1
Action Alliance for Progress Endorsement 2018
Kristine Kraus was elected to her first term on the Seminole County School Board on Nov. 6, 2018. For more than 25 years, Kristine Kraus has volunteered in Seminole County schools and worked with PTA efforts on behalf of students and teachers. With four children who graduated from local public schools, she recognizes the value of public education and is determined to pay teachers and staff a living wage.
Kraus has the unique experience of surviving a school shooting as a young girl. At a time when all school districts are struggling to balance safety with a nurturing educational environment, Kraus brings valuable insight to this issue.
In addition to school involvement, she has been a community leader as a homeowners’ association president for 14 years, during which she earned a reputation for fiscal responsibility and consensus building.
Kraus will be a strong proponent for stricter regulation of charter schools, programs addressing the needs of all students whether college bound or focused on a trade, and better communication and partnership with parents.
