Andrus family supports Winer, Panella for Kelseyville Unified School Board

The Kelseyville School District has always been important to our family. Kirk served on the school board for several terms and enjoyed his work there immensely. All three of Kirk and Quincy’s daughters — Sabrina, Caitlin and Megan — attended K-12 in the district and graduated from Kelseyville High School, well prepared to get undergraduate degrees.

Father and daughter duo Kirk and Caitlin coached basketball at the high school and Caitlin was a substitute teacher.

She also stepped up to be a member of the oversight committee for Measure U, which provided $24 million for modernization projects which are almost completed — on time and on budget.

And when two of us returned to Lake County to start businesses in downtown Kelseyville, we were grateful to find a well-educated workforce, courtesy of Kelseyville Unified, to help us in the shops.

All four of Kirk and Quincy’s grandchildren are now starting their Kelseyville Unified journey (we’ve got a first grader, a kindergartner, and two preschoolers on our hands!).

Our love for our family and for Kelseyville Unified fuels our desire for maintaining a strong School Board.

We are impressed that despite the major disruption during the 2020-2022 school years, the board stayed focused on keeping students, staff, and the community as safe as possible while staying in compliance with the required statewide public health regulations.

With the upheaval that many other school districts went through these past few years, we are even more impressed with the Kelseyville Unified School Board.

The Kelseyville Unified School Board Board instituted Zoom access to their monthly meetings so that parents could engage without attending in person.

Since schools have reopened, the board has given all staff salary increases, hired additional staff to focus on turning around learning loss and supporting students’ wellness needs — all while maintaining good financial control.

We give a lot of credit to long-time Board Chair Rick Winer. His 33 years of experience as an educator working in many diverse leadership positions has provided him with a wealth of knowledge on which he can draw to meet the challenges of the moment, including the upcoming selection process for a new superintendent. He shows up on campuses and engages with staff, students and parents.

The Andrus family wholeheartedly recommends Rick Winer’s re-election to the Kelseyville Unified School Board, along with Allison Panella who is also running for reelection after completing her first four-year term.

Please cast your vote to ensure the stability of the Board continues as they build a lasting future for the Kelseyville community.

Kirk Andrus, MD, Sabrina Andrus, JD, Caitlin Andrus and Megan Andrus live in Kelseyville, California.
