My Top 3 Priorities

  • Today our budget is balanced, we have three (3) year agreements with all employees, enrollment is up, scores are improving and thanks to the passage of bond Measures E and K, a new stadium was opened at Chico High with PV soon to follow.
  • I will continue to support expansion of the use of technology as both a teaching tool and a resource for student research and problem solving. In our complex world students must have sklills to compete successfully in their chosen career paths.
  • Providing a pathway to academic and personal success for all students is essential. Each students will be supported to reach his or her maximum potential. Social, emotional support is part of that continuum. Being a kid is hard.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

In 2010 when my service on the Board of Education began, Chico Unified had just begun the slow climb out of budget and program cuts. The passage of new legislation created the Local Control Funding Formula (LCAP) and new state standards were being developed to replace the federal “No Child Left Behind” act. 

Today our budget is balanced, we have three year agreements with all employees, enrollment is up, scores are improving and thanks to the passage of bond measures E and K, a new stadium was opened at Chico High with PV soon to follow.  Three elementary schools are being partially or totally remodeled and parent support is active and positive.

With thoughtful deliberate action I have supported restoration of Arts and Music, expansion of Career Technical Education (CTE) programs, Science, Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) programs from Elementary through high school.  More students are accessing Advanced Placement classes and our Continuing Education Program is a highly regarded model statewide.

With your support I will continue to work to strengthen those areas that continue to require additional focused attention so all CUSD students graduate with the foundation they need to be career and/or college ready.

Summary

Past history of board service and future emphasis on changing priorities.

In 2010 when my service on the Board of Education began, Chico Unified had just begun the slow climb out of budget and program cuts.  The passage of new legislation created the Local Control Funding Formula (LCAP) and new state standards in the form of Common Core benchmarks were being developed to replace the federal “No Child Left Behind” Act.

Today our budget is balanced, we have three year agreements with all employees, enrollment is up, scores are improving and we are in Phase 3 of a 20 year Facilities Master Plan.  Thanks to the passage of bond measures E and K, a new stadium was opened this year at Chico High with Pleasant Valley soon to follow.  Four Elementary schools are being partially or totally remodeled and parent support is active and positive.

With thoughtful deliberate action I hack supported restoration of Fine Arts and Music, expansion of Career Technology Education (CTE) programs, Science, Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) programs from Elementary through high school.  More students are accessing Advanced Placesment classes and our Contining Education Program is a highly regarded model statewide.

With voter support I will continue to work to strengthen those areas that continue to require additional focused attention so all CUSD students graduate with the foundation they need to be career and/or college ready.
