Registered Pali High Parents and Guardians Are Invited to Vote Through June 11
By JENNIKA INGRAM | Reporter
The Palisades Charter High School Board of Trustees is holding a special election for the non-traveling parent seat, with voting open through June 11 at 3 p.m.
Two parents are vying for the seat: Jewlz Fahn and Robert Rene. All other vacant seats were approved/filled by the Board of Trustees at its April meeting after running unopposed.
This seat may only be filled by a Pali High parent who lives in the Pali High residential area and whose child won’t be a senior next fall, since it’s a two-year commitment.
Voting is restricted to Pali High parents and guardians, with only one vote per family.
To vote, sign in to the Infinite Campus website, follow the link to the Survey tab and click on the “Parent Seat for Board of Trustees.”
“As a Pali alum and lifelong resident, I will ensure, during these troubling times, Pali remains a safe space for all students,” Fahn shared in her candidate statement.
Fahn has served on the Governance Council for four terms at Kenter Elementary, is on the Board of Directors and secretary for the Pali Quarterback Club, and is a board member of griefHaven, a Palisades-based nonprofit supporting those who have lost a loved one.
“I am also co-chair of Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Students of the Year committee,” Fahn said. “Having a son recover from cancer has made me appreciate life and forged my commitment to making his school the best it can be.”
Rene shared in his candidate statement that he has been “deeply committed” to the community and public schools for 15 years, including 12 years as president of Brentwood Homeowners Association and two years on the Board of Trustees.
Rene added that he is a “big supporter” of Pali Boosters, academics, athletics and special programs.
“I know the board well, and come with the financial and management experience critical to help Pali through these challenging times,” Rene added.
His statement includes that he has been CEO/COO for multiple companies, and that he has expertise in managing complex budgets and operations.
“I teach this subject at UCLA Business School Graduate, Stanford Business and Law Schools,” Rene said. “Once again, I will work with the parents to balance the resources we have against the critical needs of our students.”
