Campaign themes

2014

Dungan explained her themes for 2014 on her campaign website:

The future of public education in this district and across the state is in a time of transition due to impending growth, recent legislative changes both in representatives and curriculum mandates and the continued introduction of technology into the classroom. As a Trustee for the Coppell Independent School District, I have worked hard to ensure each student receives the quality education they expect from this great district. Coppell ISD’s reputation is a result of exceptional teachers, staff and families working together to the benefit of all students. It is imperative that we have Trustees who are willing to ask the tough questions to ensure our children’s education and safety remain the top priority.

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[7]
