BPS Welcomes New School Board Members
Cheryl McDougall (District 2)
Cheryl McDou- gall is a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) with 11 years in public edu- cation. She has spent the last six years as a school social worker, where
she’s worked to remove barriers that prevented children from receiving an education. Prior to becoming a social worker, she worked 10 years in a managed mental health corporation as a registered nurse. She spent six of those years as a director where she negotiated contracts and supervised a staff of eleven.
Cheryl enjoys our wonderful outdoors and beaches here in Florida. She participates in the arts and dabbles in painting watercolor landscapes. She has worked most of her life in a helping capacity. It is her goal to help children reach their full potential and make sure Brevard continues to have quality schools and highly qualified staff.
Katye Campbell (District 5)
Katye Campbell grew up in Fort Worth, Texas where she excelled in academics and music. Choosing to major in music education, she graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University in 1997
with a K-12 certificate. Katye taught middle school for 7 years in public schools in Kentucky and Texas.
She and her husband, Jim, have been married for 21 years. They moved to Brevard in 2007 and have served on the staff of First Baptist Church of Melbourne and Bay West Church of Palm Bay. Their three children, ages 14, 12, and 9, are all BPS students. Katye has remained active in the schools as an A+ volunteer, an accompanist for choirs and instrumentalists, and as a substitute teacher.
    What would you like to accomplish in your first year as school board member? “My first goal is to ‘learn the ro- pes.’ There are many complicated moving parts in a district as large as ours, and I want to be able to communicate and help effectively. I also want to work with the rest of the board and staff to increase our teacher salaries. This is essential to keeping great teachers working in our district. Ultimately, we need to increase funding for other staff po- sitions as well, so that we can move forward without the gaps in crucial areas like transportation and technology. Also, I’d like to see increased community involvement in our schools, from individual volunteers to businesses
to nonprofits.”
 What would you like to accomplish in your
first year as school board member?
“My goal is to get to know all of my schools, administra- tions, and students in District 2, while making sure our underperforming schools have what they need to be successful. I’d like to delve deeper into how we motivate our community to get engaged in our schools and focus on social and emotional learning for all our students.”
