Take Part in Something Great

Why I'm Seeking Re-Election

Committed to Every Student's Success. I am seeking re-election to the DC State Board of Education with a vision to unite parents, teachers, community members, and business leaders in a transformative effort to revolutionize public education. My goal is to guarantee the most equitable implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act.

I hold a steadfast belief that every student in the District of Columbia deserves access to a high-quality public education.

Jacque Patterson is the current DC State Board of Education At-Large Representative. Jacque is a parent and committed community activist with 25 years of proven experience in promoting educational equity to achieve better academic outcomes for all DC students. As a proud Ward 8 resident, Jacque is well aware of the inequities in public education and believes a student’s zip code should not determine the quality of the education opportunities or life outcomes.

Since moving to DC as a single father in 1995, Jacque has been a tireless advocate and dedicated member of his community dedicated to serving his community. He was elected by his neighbors to serve as their representative to Advisory Neighborhood Commission 8B in 2000 and served five terms. The following year, he was selected by former DC Mayor Anthony A. Williams as a Capital City Fellow, eventually serving as one of his Community Affairs Coordinators. During his time as a DC government employee, Jacque also worked at the Department of Human Services with families on Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
