My Top 3 Priorities

  • Equity for students, teachers and staff; Inclusion so that all stakeholders (students, teachers, staff, parents, community partners are part of the decisions making process; Teachers,students & programs are enhanced & thrive.
  • Work toward solving the budget deficient; Ensure that equity is applied in policy decisions; Nutrition, Fitness & Health; every student succeeds.
  • The district is currently trying to address their budget deficit. How we address this problem says a great deal about our priorities. Of course, it must be addressed but we need to ensure that we priortize carefully before taking action.
