Inclusive Community Subcommittee
Norman resident, Pixie Quigley, filed and announced her run for Norman School Board, Office 1.
A mom of three and active community volunteer, Pixie says she’s running to put the well-being of kids and teachers above special interests.
“Patrick and I have raised three kids in Norman Schools and we appreciate everything teachers have done for our family. Now it’s time to give back and help those who have served us. I’m running to give teachers and families a seat and a voice at the table. I will advocate with compassion, communicate with respect and transparency, and address inclusivity at all levels of schooling.”
Pixie has an extensive resume of volunteerism in Norman, dedicating years of service as a tutor for Bridges, troop leader for Girl Scouts, committee chair for Monroe and Alcott PTA, community liaison for Women’s Resource Center, vice-president of Norman Pride, vice-president of Norman Instrumental Music Parents Association, and founder of Norman Community Advocacy Team (nCAT).
“The primary focus of my work is helping youth in need, regardless of circumstance. As the mom of an adult gay son, I've witnessed the NPS school system's struggle to provide an inclusive and accepting environment. While they have made progress in recent years, the system still has a long way to go. I’ve learned to advocate and become a staunch ally for kids who are working toward their education goals while also developing who they are as people. I’ll use these lessons I’ve learned to advocate for our kids and our teachers during this current crisis of health and education.”
Pixie studied Literature at Oklahoma City Community College and English at the University of Oklahoma. Her husband, Patrick, works as a software engineer for the National Weather Service.
“My goal is to rebuild community trust through transparency. It’s my job to listen and be accessible to constituents. I will ensure that the district hears and acknowledges the concerns of the community. I will personally correspond with constituents, and if I don’t immediately have an answer, I’ll do the research to find it.”

Community input is essential. Issues that are to be voted on should be discussed openly during BOE meetings. Backroom decisions don’t create balance.
Information belongs to the people. BOE meeting minutes and other items of public record should be readily accessible on the district's website.
Without oversight to evaluate efficacy, monitor progress, and improve or replace inadequate programming, we can never truly move forward.
The district has taken a significant step by hiring a new DEI Director, and we must ensure that those principles are put into practice for all underserved groups.
BOE members should show an interest in the day-to-day operations of schools by visiting classrooms and interacting with teachers and staff.
We must be transparent in how we handle the pandemic. We have a duty to share the decision-making process with parents, teachers, and support staff.
