Campaign themes

Unequal achievement

I believe it is important that we strive for all our schools to reach their full potential. We have some schools that are performing well, but others are not reaching their full potential. We are a program improvement district due to these underperforming school sites and that needs to change. I feel it is time for a new energy and a fresh perspective to help all schools meet the standards put in front of them. If we do not take care of even one school in our district, the whole district fails.
