Kathy A. Thompson


Kathy - Feb. 2015Kathy A. Thompson is a native Californian, born in Los Angeles.  As a student, she moved many times and knows the critical role schools can play in the life of a child.  She is married to her husband Ron, and they have 3 grown children all who attended Central schools.  Although she began her career as a nurse, Kathy now teaches health career courses for the Riverside County Office of Education.  Ron is also an instructor in the area of science.

As an active parent volunteer, Kathy was frequently at her children’s schools; Bear Gulch Elementary and Cucamonga Middle School.  Later she would also volunteer at Alta Loma High School.  She served as PTO president, school site council member and on district committees before her service as a trustee.  The time she spent in the schools of Central School District made her aware of the priority that every child will succeed.  Caring teachers and staff poured themselves into the students as they continue to do today.

Kathy also values the contribution of the local school to the community.  Good schools are the foundation of excellent cities.  Central School District has always been a district that is a proud part of Rancho Cucamonga with clean, safe campuses and students that promote from middle school ready for the rigors of high school.

Currently, Kathy is a member of the San Bernardino County School Boards Association and is a delegate to the California School Boards Association.  Being involved on a broader level helps Kathy to advocate for Central School District students and to be aware of trends across the county and state.

Kathy states, “I am honored to continue my service to the Central School District family.  I know that Central is among the finest in the area!  Our students, employees and community are all committed to the excellent education of each student.  It is a privilege to be part of this respected organization.”
