Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Communication - Transparency: Board members should be more accessible to the public, staff, and the community.
  • Education - STEAM: Focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. But let's not forget the Arts.
  • Parent Involvement and Community Outreach: JUSD must continue to provide parents with the tools necessary for their students success.

Top Priority is Increased Graduation Rates




Parent Involvement

Four years ago, I promised to represent you, in decisions with the goal of benefiting all our students in Jurupa Valley.  My top priority, increasing graduation rates.  My own three children graduated within the district.  My goal is simple and accomplished in these steps.

1.       Communication:  Stakeholder communication and transparency

a.      Board members are accessible to the public and communicate as a whole, by providing clearer direction to the district of doing business.

2.      Education:  Focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and Arts/Humanities

a.      STEAM programs have been implemented across the district and are a priority.  Jurupa Valley High School Innovation Center, Del Sol Academy, and Pacific Avenue Academy of Music, among others.

3.      Parent Involvement:  Involve parents early and build a lasting foundation

a.      Parent Involvement and Community Outreach department created by offering more than a dozen programs through the district, giving parents the tools necessary for their students’ success.

Through these efforts, graduation rates have increased almost 20% in the past four years.  Students are more prepared for college/career and receiving a well-rounded education.

I would be honored to receive your vote, once again, to continue the important work of educating the leaders of tomorrow.
