Graduation rates

"Graduation rates are on the decline in Thompson School District compared to other schools in the region. Let's find a way to promote dual tracks - one towards college and the other towards vocational training. Let's give students of all inclinations a path to success."

Fiscal responsibility

"Families in the district are hardworking and are all still feeling the pinch of the slow economic recovery. Let's find ways to improve upon the efficient and responsible use of tax dollars in the district. Our kids, teachers, parents and business owners deserve it!"

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.[8]
