As a father, an educator, a veteran, and an experienced leader I am eager to address the current challenges facing our district. I am running for school board to prioritize excellent education for all of our Fullerton Joint Union High School District students.

  • Let's keep politics out of the classroom! Our district needs board members who will focus on quality education (reading, writing, and mathematics) instead of being distracted by political agendas and special interest groups.
  • Our students require strong leadership to overcome the learning loss from coronavirus policies. 
  • FJUHSD families deserve school board leaders who will listen to their concerns, lead with transparency, and do not have conflicts of interest.
Matt Van Hook is ready to listen and ready to lead.
Help us elect Matt to FJUHSD School Board!

"Matt Van Hook will be a fair arbiter in hearing and balancing the needs and wants of FJUHSD students, parents, teachers, and staff. Matt has no professional or financial ties to the public education system. However, being a father of FJUHSD students, a son of two teachers, and growing up in Orange County, he will make a great addition to the board of trustees."
