Position Papers

Alpine School Board Platform

First, and foremost, Alpine Union will be a district that welcomes their children. Every parent I asked about why their children go to the charter or LCC say that is the big difference.  

Second, Alpine Union will be a transparent district. (If they hid the atrocious state of the buses, what else were/are they hiding?)


Third, children's safety will move to the forefront, both on and off campus. (You've seen the headlines as well as the traffic at drop off and pick up.)


Fourth, Alpine Union's focus will be on the academic performance of the children. (There is no reason the Charter and LCC should out perform us.)


Fifth, Alpine Union will spend its money in the classroom, not in legal fees for misadventures. (We'll use it for pay raises and to reduce class size to start.)






Alpine Union School District is a district in trouble.  It has spent $1 million on legal fees in suits against other school districts, and has lost every one.  It cannot fix its district offices for lack of money.  The district transportation department repeatedly failed inspections by the California Highway Patrol and was on the verge of being shut down when it contracted with another district to take over.  The students in the district rode on unsafe buses for two years.  Parents are taking their children out of the district for other schools, public and charter.  Administrators were illegally changing grades.  The district must borrow money to pay its commitments.  The list goes on and on.  Alpine Union needs change at the top and I am the person who can lead the district to excellence.  Our children should receive every penny of our tax dollars, to make our class size smaller, to make our classrooms safe and to provide the highest academic instruction, for all of our students.  Our children should feel welcomed, be with their friends and look forward to attending school every day.  A vote for me with ensure this is the case in Alpine Union.
