Meet the new 2022-2023 School Board Members

CJ Calarco

Francis CJ Calarco  My name is CJ Calarco. I have lived in Auburn for most of my life aside from going away for undergraduate work at Iona College.  I returned to Auburn and worked on my Graduate Degree in education at Le Moyne College.  I have since been teaching math at the High School level since 2012, and have coached several sports at different levels.  I'm running to give back to the community that gave me the opportunities to be where I am today, with the experience of a tenured classroom teacher and coach.  My goal as a board member is to maintain a common-sense perspective on the education we offer to the kids in our district to be sure they all get the type of opportunities that the community has afforded me.



Daniel Lovell

Daniel Lovell  Daniel is a life resident of Cayuga County, whose five children have all attended Auburn schools. He's an information technology professional and small business owner focused on local business, municipalities and non-profits. Dan comes from a family of educators and has dedicated much of his adult life to community service. He's served on many local boards, including the Cayuga County Chamber of Commerce, the Red Cross, Salvation Army, and Cayuga County Arts Council. He's won numerous awards, including Syracuse Press Club's Professional Standards award, and was named Cayuga County's Young Professional of the Year and one of Syracuse's 40 under 40 (he is no longer under 40). Dan's an avid musician who plays over two dozen instruments. Dan believes successful schools are vital to healthy communities. We must focus on making our schools the best they can be, supporting students at all levels and all abilities, and ensuring our students are more than prepared for college, trade school or the workforce. To accomplish this, Dan believes in providing support for our teachers and staff, and lobbying the state to get our fair share of aid. 

Jim Van Arsdale

Jim Van Arsdale   It is a mix of life and professional experiences that give me the desire to serve as a board member in the Auburn Enlarged School District. I have been committed to doing my best in our community to help provide as many positive and uplifting experiences for all our youth. I believe our school system plays a vital role in creating these opportunities. Our schools are the community’s biggest financial and human investment we make together. I would like to be part of the team that moves education forward in Auburn. With that as my purpose, I ask for your vote for the school board this May. My wife Lisa and I are blessed with 2 daughters, Jennifer and Nicole, both Auburn graduates.

Danielle Wood

Danielle Wood  The last three years I have devoted to the Auburn School Board have been a tremendous experience. I have committed myself to ensuring our students have the tools they need to be successful learners and contribute to our community into adulthood. I intend to continue to push for proper state funding and support both staff and students while promoting a positive, nurturing setting for all. Over the last seven years, volunteer efforts district-wide, at Herman Ave Elementary and the YMCA, have provided me with ample insight and experience to continue serving our district. I have a small business and am employed as a substitute Preschool Assistant at the YMCA. An Auburn graduate, I am married to Justin, with three children, Kellan (9), Ailey (7), and Marlowe (5).
