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."
