Kristine Kraus Launches Campaign for Seminole County School Board District 1

OVIEDO, FL – Kristine Kraus, an active volunteer in Seminole schools and a mother of four Seminole County Public School graduates, has announced her campaign kickoff today for Seminole County School Board District 1.

A kickoff event is planned for March 26, from 6:00-8:30 p.m., at Habaneros Mexican Grill in Oviedo, 829 Eyrie Drive, Oviedo, FL 32765.

Kristine has been an active resident of the Seminole County community for 27 years with her husband of 37 years, Mike Kraus.

“I am running for Seminole School Board because our children urgently need leadership,” said Kraus. “Our neighbors and fellow volunteers know I show up. I am present in the community, listening to teachers, parents, and neighbors and one of the first to volunteer. It would be an honor to serve our residents by providing active, attentive leadership for our school system.”

Kristine Kraus attends Seminole School Board meetings and is a volunteer with Rainbow Elementary’s Kindergarten Ready program. Kraus has served as a homeowners association president for 14 years. As a community activist, she gathered the support of 5,000 neighbors in 14 subdivisions to protect the very last parcel of residential land in her neighborhood from a large commercial development. She attends City and County Commission meetings to remain informed on the latest issues concerning residents. Kraus also taught YMCA preschool programs professionally for 18 years.

As a school-shooting survivor herself, Kristine understands the fears of parents and students about school safety. “The answer is not more guns in schools,” says Kraus. “We need a comprehensive approach to school safety.”

All four of Kristine’s children attended Seminole County Public Schools – Rainbow Elementary, Tuskawilla Middle, Lake Howell High and Crooms Academy of Information and Technology. Her kids were active in their student governments and leadership, as well as Scouting, sports and volunteering.  Kristine assisted in event planning, Teacher Appreciation, yearbook, field trips, as a School Advisory Chair, and on the High School Rezoning committee and District Governor’s Junior All Star committee.

The Seminole County School Board election is Tuesday, August 28, with a runoff election if no candidate receives more than half the vote on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. Find out more about Kristine Kraus at www.KrausForSchools.com.
