GOVERNING BOARD MEMBER
DMITRIY VOLOSHIN Age: 40
Occupation: Education Director/Instructor
Educational opportunity led to my success as my family came to the
USA as refugees from Ukraine twenty three years ago with very little.
The support I received at school empowered me to master English,
succeed in college, and ultimately earn my Doctorate in Education from
UC Santa Cruz. I believe every child in West Sacramento deserves the
I know we can do so much more for our students and I have the
experience and skills to make it happen. I have spent the last twelve
years in public education: from teaching high school mathematics,
to working on educational policy and standards at the California
Department of Education, to heading Educational Services at a school
district, and teaching at a university.
We will improve student success by:
• Investing more in our classrooms and teachers by cutting
• Ensuring every student is college and career ready by raising
our academic expectations and expanding our Career
Technical Education programs;
• Ensuring greater public oversight of district operations
through parent and community engagement.
In addition to my passion for increased student success, I bring a deep
understanding of instructional programs and budgeting. Please join
trustee Norma Alcala in supporting my candidacy.
