JAiME for SCHOOLS begins and ends with kids.

Welcome! I am so glad you came to visit!

My name is Jaime Kokaisel, and I am the author of JAiME for SCHOOLS. I have called Woodbury, MN my home for over 12 years now (and prior to that, Saint Paul).

This website was created during my run for ISD#833 school board as a way to communicate campaign efforts and stances. On November 2nd 2021, I received 8,239 votes by my community. This was not enough to secure a spot on the board, however since then my desire to improve education has not ceased but rather burns stronger than ever before.

In 2022 this website has changed from “JaimeforSchoolBoard” to “JaimeforSchools” because it is the education of ALL children I care about: public, private and home schooled. I share my journal publicly out of the desire for us to grow together, in understanding and in hope of finding the best school model for our children.

This blog is purely an exploration of my observations. I most certainly do not claim to know everything, but it’s too easy to talk ourselves out of commitment for fear of failure. True failure happens when we are too afraid to take the first step. Without a first step there can never be a second, a third, and a final step. If you are following along with me, thank you for having an open mind to the process. I hope you will also participate in some of the Q & A surveys as they are published.

From this past 2021 School Board Campaign

I am running for ISD 833 School Board because Education is top priority. I believe we are at a critical point with special interest groups seeking to replace our district’s educational excellence with divisive partisan policy.

Our publicly funded schools and non-partisan culture of learning is critical to overall trust and district-wide unity. With funding shortfalls, program cuts, increasing class sizes, declining student proficiency, and personal freedoms under attack, now is the time for new and creative ideas to work toward better solutions.

If elected I will:

  • Work to restore TRUST in district leadership.
  • Bring TRANSPARENCY to district policy, process, and financing.
  • Be ACCOUNTABLE for students’ consistent and measured success.
  • Offer COMMON-SENSE policies that are compatible with student life.
  • Listen RESPECTFULLY to opinions of students, parents, and teachers.

I believe in the children of South Washington County.

After talking with the community over the last few months, I have been inspired by dedicated parents excited to tell their stories. There are many voices who want to be heard, and I am listening to every word.
