I believe that the education of a child's mind and molding of their spirit and soul is primarily under the authority of their parents. The school should never override the rights of parents. They should partner with them on the education side to build great character and good citizens in our country. I will help restore parental rights.
I will advocate for our schools to provide quality learning and academic excellence that prepare children and adolescents to succeed. I will ensure our children have a safe learning environment, free of any government-run political agenda.
I believe the school board should advocate towards the individual academic needs of all students. Students deserve in-classroom teaching as it is essential for their developmental and emotional needs. Students should NEVER have to comply with state mandates in order to receive a quality and equal education.
Students have the right to feel, and be safe at school. I will work with other safety leaders to facilitate the highest school safety policies and call for UPDATED and maintained fire and emergency standards and equipment.
It is imperative that parents, students and stakeholders know exactly what is going on in the school board. I will ensure budgetary transparency and hold our district accountable to the taxpayers.
Please feel free to reach out to me.
It is my promise, that if I am elected as your school board trustee, I'll have an open door policy. I want to hear from parents, students, and teachers.

Hello! My name is Julie Norton. I’ve been happily married for 20 years. I’m a stay-at-home mom to our four beautiful daughters, all of whom have attended or are attending Huntington Beach public
schools. I’m a 20+ year HB resident, and more than 15 of those have been dedicated to volunteering in the classroom. Now more than ever I feel called to serve in a larger role. Over those 15 years, I’ve watched with disappointment, our school board members’ gradual disregard for parents' rights, the educational needs of
students, and overall support for teachers.
The current board’s lack of courage and refusal to communicate with our local community has made it clear their allegiance is to the state, district
staff, and lawyers - not us. I’m dedicated to representing you and bringing real change.
Parents’ concerns should be respected and allowed to be vocalized openly during open discussion at public meetings. I will make sure your voices are
heard. I support CHOICE - I will never agree to classroom closures for those who want and need in-person instruction, masking healthy children, or forcing an experimental vaccine on students, teachers and staff. I will never support divisive, state driven political ideology, indoctrination, or activism. I will fight to restore our schools - prioritizing a quality education that will prepare our children and give them hope for a successful, and prosperous future.
My 15+ years of volunteer experience in a parent-teacher partnership, working with staff and other parents makes me uniquely qualified to bring a
new and necessary expertise and perspective to the board. I would be honored to have your vote.
#Your Kids. Your Choice. Your Voice.
