Baguirov's campaign blog listed the following themes for 2013:
"I will advocate for marked increases in the graduation rate for DPS students, and through open communication and collaborative efforts, I will facilitate initiatives that promote increased parental and community involvement in DPS.
I expect to achieve these goals by keeping the focus on student achievement, and having the associated accountability discussion on a regular basis. With a frequent review of student data, I believe we can identify all struggling students at an earlier stage in their education, and provide them with the needed resources to get back on track. I think the accountability discussion looks at the benchmarks that track a student’s progress to success. Accountability is also an evaluation of the effectiveness of instructional programs and teaching methodology. Finally, I will reach out to parents and the community to promote education, interaction, and working towards a unified and comprehensive approach to public education in the district."

Dayton lags behind the rest of Ohio in terms of higher education achievement, median income and poverty rate. The 2010 U.S. Census found that 15% of Columbus residents over 25 years old held undergraduate degrees compared to a 24.5% rate for the state of Ohio. Dayton had a median income of $28,843 in 2010 compared to $48,071 for Ohio. The poverty rate for Dayton was 32.5% in 2010 compared to an 14.8% rate for the rest of the state.
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.
