Angi Agle is running for re-election to the Oak Ridge Board of Education in the November 8 election. Early voting starts Wednesday, October 19.
Now completing her third term, Agle serves as the Board’s representative on the Tennessee Legislative Network, which helps to keep all Board members informed about proposed and new legislation affecting schools from the state level, a press release said. Agle has earned the Level IV Board Member designation from TSBA through continuing education through the Tennessee School Boards Association—in addition to civic and legislative advocacy.
“Oak Ridge Schools are now gaining traction toward some long-time goals, and I believe it is important to see these through,” Agle said in the press release. “The Seven Keys to College and Career Readiness, the five-year plan devised by the community-based 2020 Planning Committee, and the Access Oak Ridge initiative give us concrete goals, direction, and tools to ensure that our students—all of our students—succeed.”
There are challenges to overcome, Agle said. But “there are also tremendous opportunities to give the children of Oak Ridge the best start we possibly can, thereby strengthening the community as a whole,” she said. “Understanding that children learn differently, and at different rates, we must continue to support our teachers and educational programs to ensure that all students reach their maximum potential.”
Agle and her husband, Chuck, are parents of four daughters who graduated from Oak Ridge High School. Both remain involved in Oak Ridge Schools as volunteers with the Technology Student Association at Robertsville Middle School, the Secret City Wildbots at ORHS, and she with the Readers and Leaders tutoring program at Willow Brook Elementary School, the press release said.
Betsy Coleman serves as Agle’s campaign treasurer. Additional information may be found at www.angiagle.com.
