I Will Work To:
Close the achievement gap by investing in early education and parent involvement, and by providing all our students with instruction and experiences that promote a love of learning as well as higher order thinking skills.
Create a transparent school budget process in which the Board, Superintendent, parents and taxpayers work together to set goals and allocate funds, focusing especially on the direct needs of students and teachers.
Foster environmental responsibility by building new schools to LEED standards and teaching the 3 R’s of ‘reduce, reuse, recycle.’
Encourage parents’ and community involvement by expanding volunteer opportunities and opening school facilities to the community-at-large.
