Our Students Come First
It is time for the kind of change that commits to responsible revenue spending and funding that places the instruction of students over that of the special interests who support my opponent.
Families need support to increase participation: not barriers to entry
The families of our students are partners in the instructional experiences. Classroom instruction is only one part of the learning equation. Parents must be able to easily access materials, support, and communication tools to partner with a student's teacher for successful learning.
Our School Board, Administration, Support Staff, and Teachers should all be given the authority and permission to provide parents with supportive and logistical access for parents in a way that is meaningful and easy to use.
We need to increase our use of readily available technology so that parents, students, and family members can choose to be an active part of a student's learning environment and experiences.
Teachers need REAL Support in our District
EVERY teacher, administrator, and staff member in this School District should be supported by our School Board with a voice in the creation and implementation of curriculum regardless of their chosen affiliations.
Our teachers are the best analyzers of school, curriculum, and instructional needs. We need to provide for increased communications with each individual teacher to formulate a working budgetary plan that will best meet the needs of our students.
