Washington Unified School Board Trustee

Sarah Kirby-Gonzalez

Dear Friends and Supporters:

Thanks to your help, I was elected overwhelmingly to the Washington Unified School District Board in a 2013 special election and re-elected in 2015. In 2017 I served as president of the Board. It has been an honor to serve and I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished. I care deeply for our students and community and am fully committed to continuing the progress WUSD has made. That’s why I’m running for re-election and asking for your support and vote this November. Our schools have made dramatic improvements, which makes our whole community stronger. I am proud to have once again won the official endorsement of West Sacramento teachers.

As a teacher in a neighboring city, I reduced my teaching contract by 20% when I was first elected so that I could give more attention to West Sacramento schools. This allowed me the great joy of regularly visiting classrooms throughout WUSD and learning from our students. I have seen firsthand the transformation of WUSD from a test-focused culture to one focused on individual students and learning.  

For a snapshot of the things we have achieved since I joined the board, click here or go to the ACHIEVEMENTS page.

There is still much work to be done – including developing facility plans to accommodate our student growth, the implementation of updated safety plans, continuing to strengthen the Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports for our students, advocating at the state level for fair and adequate funding, communicating with our community so everyone knows the great work being done in our classrooms, and ensuring stability and longevity of our high-quality staff.

I pledge my continued dedication to you, and ask for your support.


Best Regards,

~Sarah Kirby-Gonzalez
