Deborah Anderson for SCASD School Board

  • Excellence in education for all students

  • Fiscal responsibility

  • Welcoming and inclusive schools


I look forward to serving our community

As an informed and involved parent of two State High students, I believe I will be an excellent member of the State College Area School District Board of Directors. Thoughtful and eager to consider all sides of an issue, I am ready to invest considerable time and energy for our community. My Ph.D. in labor economics will help me to understand budgets and ensure resources are used efficiently and effectively. Above all, I am committed to listening, learning, and making decisions for the benefit of all students.

"I had the pleasure of working with Debbie on both the FTE PTO and MNMS Boys' Soccer Boosters. She's incredibly organized and is always willing to lend a hand. She's also a keen listener who appreciates hearing all perspectives on matters. These qualities, combined with her background in economics, make her a highly qualified candidate for the SCASD school board."

"So excited my friend, Deborah Anderson, is running for SCASD school board! I have done volunteer work with Debbie since our kids were in elementary school, and most recently we were on the board for State College Music Boosters together. She is great to work with: level-headed, prepared, and diligent. She will be a wonderful addition, and I hope my local friends will join me in supporting her!"

"Debbie and I met when she moved to the area and our kids, now soon to graduate high school, went off to kindergarten. From the start, Debbie was an involved parent. She generously volunteered, payed attention, and listened. Honest and forthright, Deb was (and continues to be) one of my most trusted resources for becoming informed about school issues because she always gathers full details that consider multiple perspectives. She’s smart, fair, equitable, efficient, and not afraid to navigate complicated issues. As a School Board member, I know she will ensure that all voices are heard before decisions are made. To me, this quality is exactly what makes Debbie an excellent candidate."

"Having worked with you with the FTE PTO, I have a good sense of the time and energy you will put into this new venture and I know you'll be great!"
