Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de The League of Women Voters North County San Diego (4)

What are the pressing problems of this school district, in your opinion, and what experience do you bring to the Board that will help address these problems?
Respuesta de Lita Tabish:

The most pressing problem for the Fallbrook Union High School district is the budget. As stated by the district's own financial officer this district will enter deficit spending next year. The district currently spends far too much money on Administration. FUHSD was fined by the state of California for having too many Administrators for the district’s size. I am an Educator and a local business owner. I have experience balancing budgets, setting goals and managing programs. I believe that my management and communication skills will assist in changing the vision of our district and bring our schools back to their past glory where Fallbrook was one of the top schools in San Diego county. I strongly believe the reason we are here is students. We need to support programs that work and provide opportunities for all our students to be successful in life. We need to push our funding directly into the classrooms and cut overhead to set up a better educational system for all our students.

What is your view of charter schools?
Respuesta de Lita Tabish:

I am opposed to Charter schools. I feel that Charter schools take necessary funds away from public schools and do not have the accountability that public schools have. Many Charter schools do not accept “At risk” or “Special Education” students, leaving a larger number of these special populations in public schools with less overall funding. I feel working together as a community we can solve many of the educational issues, rather than separating into small opposing groups.

Should the district curb its school choice initiatives (for students who are not in charter schools), so that more students stay in their neighborhood schools? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Lita Tabish:

Yes - I feel it is important to keep students in the neighborhood schools. This is how a community is built. We must get to know each other and work to provide all the needed services and programs for our students. Our classes need to fit the needs of the students we serve. I have been involved in Career Technical Education. I managed job training internships at Fallbrook High School, set up Fallbrook Community Based Advisory meetings and completed Articulation agreements with Palomar/Mira Costa Colleges so Fallbrook students earned college credit while in High School. It is through our community input and assistance that we can provide life skills and career training for our students.

Are there school discipline strategies or behavioral support programs that you find appealing alternatives to exclusionary or punitive discipline? If so, which ones, and why?
Respuesta de Lita Tabish:

I feel you need to look at the problem long before it gets to this level. If students are connected to school and see that school is setting them up for a future career they are far less likely to cause problems. In my 18 years of teaching at Fallbrook I never once filed a discipline referral. My students saw the connection to a future and worked hard toward that goal. Yes, we had small disruptions but never at a referral level. Most students will step up to the level you expect, as long as they see their future goal is within reach.
