Biografía

My name is Rhonda Taylor;
I am running for a seat on the Lakeside Union School Board. I would like to say first and foremost, thank you to the members of the current school board who have served for so many years! The guidance has been appreciated. In the past few years, there has been a growing feeling of disconnect between the employees, and the school board. It's time to bring the feeling of "family" back to the Lakeside Union School District!

In addition, the educational landscape is changing at a rapid rate, I have studied the changes, and I am poised to help Lakeside make the most of these changes. I am qualified and passionate about running for a seat on this board, as I have spent 21 years helping to cultivate the dream of LUSD. I began as a student teacher at Lakeview Elementary School. After teaching 12 years at Lakeside Farms Elementary, I became Vice-Principal at Lakeside Middle School and assisted the amazing Mr. Mull in the early stages of creating the Lakeside Middle School of Performing Arts. I then became the principal of Lakeview Elementary School. My talented staff and I began a comprehensive music education program, a 50% bilingual program, and watched our students soar to success! I eventually moved to the LUSD District Office where I helped to transition our staff to the Common Core State Standards and led two curriculum pilots, adopting the curriculum now used in Math and Language Arts. Ultimately, I moved to the Poway Unified School District to see how a different district operates. I am planning to bring the insight gained right back to Lakeside! 

I am grateful for your support!

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (1)

A recent law made major changes in the way that the state allocates funding to schools. What will you do to ensure that the public understands your local control formula for school spending and your plan to measure outcomes?
Respuesta de Rhonda Taylor:

I will ensure that the LUSD sends annual survey's to parents and the community to gauge the thoughts and feelings of the parents and the community about programs and activities regarding student education offerings. I will keep open communication with our parents and community to ensure that their voices are being heard, and the finances are being spent in the best interest of our students and staff. 

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of San Diego (1)

What is the most significant challenge facing the Lakeside Union School District, and if you are elected, what steps will you take to address it?
Respuesta de Rhonda Taylor:

There are two significant challenges facing LUSD right now. The first challenge is the breakdown of communication felt by the teachers and the classified employees of the district and the current school board. If these two entities can't function in unison, and with trust, our students will suffer. Lakeside has always been a family, and currently, that feeling of "family" no longer exists for the employees. 

Another significant challenge facing the Lakeside Union School District is keeping up with the rapidly changing educational landscape.The introduction of new testing procedures, curriculum, and technology have caused stress for our students and teachers. Allowing teachers to have appropriate training, and time to  implement these new systems is vital to student success.

Filosofía política

I believe it is the responsibility of all politicians to promote healthy practices and good for the collective group. Ego should not be a driving motivation in serving the best interest of the public.

This video discusses the growing sense of loss of communication between the LUSD school board, and the district employees. A united view and a sense of family is needed to ensure that our students have access to all they need.
