Let's work together to build a community of schools
as exceptional as the students within them.

My name is Allen Smith and I am asking for your support on Tuesday, November 7th, 2017 so I can serve our community as the District 6 board representative for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools.

We deserve a modern school system rooted in shared values and fueled by collaboration.

As your representative, I will increase transparency around board decisions and engage with the community to ensure everyone's voice shapes the conversation. I will work to ensure progress and cooperation propel our school board, whose important work has too often come to a halt over politics. As our Queen City and the thriving towns that surround her continue to grow, I pledge to ensure our schools rise to the needs of a modern metropolis where technology, diversity, and inclusion set us apart.


As a former teacher, I have faced the same pervasive challenges our talented educators grapple with every day, and I have experienced the same incomparible feeling of helping students find success at any cost.


I am a father of two brilliant young ladies, and I believe other parents want an equitable system where all students receive an outstanding education in a safe environment regardless of their race, their income, or their ZIP code.


Building a future as bright as our children means challenging ourselves to embrace technology, question truths, and reject the status quo in favor of fresh policies that keep power in the hands of the community.

A few key issues

Achievement for all

Real-world preparation

Education is not about reaching a destination; it's about building momentum. If we teach students how to learn, collaborate, and work hard, they will succeed anywhere.

Modern schools

Modern Learning

We should embrace technology and use it thoughtfully to help nurture creativity, encourage entrepreneurship, and build critical thinking skills.

Empower teachers

Empowered Teachers

We need to help teachers do the phenomenal work they are all capable of by giving them the tools, support, and professional fulfillment they all deserve.

Diversity and inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion

All students deserve to feel safe, supported, and equally important — regardless of who they are, where they come from, or what future they want for themselves.
