Experienced Leadership

Dear Neighbor,

The Chula Vista Elementary School District is failing our community and our children. We are consistently seeing under-performing math and reading scores, parents feeling voiceless, and political activists dominating the conversation.


We have had enough. ¡YA BASTA!


I am a lifelong San Diegan and have lived in Chula Vista for the last 18 years. I am a proud mother, grandmother, and "tia nana". I am running for the CVESD Seat 3, because I know we can do better. I believe we can build a school district that we can all be proud of. Where students excel and families thrive.


I hope you will consider joining me in this effort. Together, we WILL put students first.

About Delia

I spent most of my career working with the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency. I began as an eligibility technician and worked my way up to an administrator in the department. While working with the County of San Diego, I attended Southwestern College and went on to graduate with Honors from the University of San Diego Paralegal Program. Throughout my career, my work focused on helping some of the most vulnerable in our community access the resources they needed to get by. By the time I retired, I was supervising numerous processes, overseeing a large staff, and ensuring the fiscal responsibility and efficiency of our programs. 

I have been a longtime non-profit volunteer and am deeply involved in our community. I have been an active member and a leader in the Latino American Political Association since 2000, served on the City of San Diego’s Latino Advisory Board, completed the City of Chula Vista Citizen’s Police Academy, and I volunteer helping provide supportive services to victims of domestic violence through SBCS - Casa Seguras.​

Most importantly, I am a committed wife, mother, and grandmother. In our blended family, we have nine children and sixteen grandchildren.


Improving Academic Outcomes

Students in the Chula Vista Elementary School District are underperforming– particularly those in our lowest-income, predominantly immigrant communities. We need to ensure teachers are rewarded for their hard work and provide them the necessary resources to be successful. We absolutely need to focus on the underperforming schools and address the root cause of the overall proficiency scores in reading, writing, and math performance of our students. 


Student Mental Health

The COVID-19 pandemic has shined a bright light on the failure of our schools to provide supportive learning environments that foster the well-being of our children. Never, should the needs of adults be placed above those of our children and students. We can never let the mental health of our students suffer again. We should be prioritizing efforts to make our classrooms happy, healthy learning environments.


Transparency, Accountability, and Parental Involvement

Our children are better served when parents and families are able to play a part in the education of their child. Unfortunately, CVESD has developed a culture of exclusion in which parents seeking to get involved are ridiculed and obstructed. We need to ensure Chula Vista schools are open, transparent, accountable, and welcoming to parents and families.

Campus Safety

Currently there are only a few schools in the district with school resource officers and we need to change that. We should have school resource officers on each and every campus in the district. In addition, we should not spend another penny of bond revenue until we use those funds to build fencing and security camera systems on every campus in the district. The safety of our kids, staff and teachers should be our top priority.
