Vanessa Sanburn

Vanessa SanburnI am honored to serve another term as a school board member in this excellent school district, and welcome your point of view and comments. I will work hard to ensure that I always keep the best interests of students in mind when making decisions.

My Priorities:
  • Focus on improving achievement for all students;   
  • Ensure adequate distribution of resources to meet student and teacher needs;   
  • Make decisions based on facts and sound scientific data, not on ideology;   
  • Effectively engage community members in the decision-making process;
  • Engage with lawmakers at the state level to communicate the impact their decisions have on our schools.  

I have a master's of social work from the University of Kansas and a bachelor's of science degree in biology from Wichita State University. My husband, Jake, and I live in North Lawrence with our two daughters, the oldest of whom attends Woodlawn Elementary. I am proud to be part of Lawrence Public Schools and will work hard to ensure that we meet the needs of every student.
