Vanita R. Overby Official online announcement of candidate for Williamsburg and James City County Public Schools Board member

Dear Supporters,

   I attended the Williamsburg and James City County Public Schools work session and first  in-person monthly meeting in May 2021 and June 2021. The school board members were excited about the students returning back to school and Moving Forward with the six goals in Elevating beyond Excellency.  I could feel the sincerity and appreciation for our educators from each and every school board member in how educators performed during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Actually, they had a media presentation from the beginning of virtual and hybrid learning as a way to commemorate the efforts and hard work of the educators during  COVID-19.  The presentations were so meaningful and that on the same day of the school board meeting vaccinations were given to our students in the Williamsburg and James City County Public Schools system. Therefore, Moving Forward a timely essence theme.  Inclusion and equity to educational  in goal number two is one of my points of interest as well for inclusion and educational access to the sometimes marginalized group LatinaX, Latina/os and Hispanics to increase graduation rates.   We all know that our whole universe has experienced a traumatic event  the Coronavirus pandemic and now is the time to "Move forward " and get all our students up  to and excel beyond the standards.  I will advocate for all students and grant access and  not delay  educational services based on psycho-social factors.


     Vanita Overby platform agenda items are:

1. Reduce high school dropout rate among LatinaX, Latina/os and Hispanics which is currently 14% by promoting a positive school climate.

2. Grade level curriculum with testing for students who have challenges with subject matter placement to prevent repeating the same grade level especially since our students are returning from the COVID-19 Pandemic.

3. Reduce process time of students receiving School Based Mental Health Counseling services that require IEPs.
4. Offer a whole milk option for school provided meals on the breakfast and lunch menus.
5. Provide a School television broadcasting network for the community to have readily access to school events.

I  believe in Pro-Life, because an abortion is an act of murder.  Many people feel that at ontogenesis the embryo is not viable.  That is not true because how does the embryo grow without life?

Gun Rights

May 20, 2020

The second amendment gives citizens the right to bear arms.  That being said, it is a Constitutional law. That's a no brainer with that right but many people feel that it creates violence.  No, people kill people!

Fourteenth Amendment

June 3, 2020

14th Amendment

The Fourteenth Amendment addresses many aspects of citizenship and the rights of citizens. The most commonly used -- and frequently litigated -- phrase in the amendment is "equal protection of the laws", which figures prominently in a wide variety of landmark cases, including Brown v. Board of Education (racial discrimination), Roe v. Wade (reproductive rights), Bush v. Gore (election recounts), Reed v. Reed (gender discrimination), and University of California v. Bakke (racial quotas in education). See more...

Amendment XIV

Section 1.

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Section 2.

Representatives shall be apportioned among the several states according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each state, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the executive and judicial officers of a state, or the members of the legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such state, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such state.

But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any state shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.
