To continue promotion of balanced education, safety of our students and the development of pre-k programs.
I don’t have any political role models. I have people that I respect for all the work that they have done to promote education.
Safety and protection of our students.
Funding, hiring qualified teachers and retention, and Pre-k programs.
I have reviewed many parts of our curriculum. I have issues with basic life skills not being taught. We focus on higher education but forget that many students are needed in the vocational trades.
We have worked hard to support our superintendent in keeping our budget under control. We are challenged with the overall cost of health care and deferred maintenance of our schools. With new Pre-k mandates coming it going to be another challenge.
I’m fine at this time with tenure.
I’m for testing but we over test students to death.
Class size should be kept smaller, 22-24 students.
