My Top 3 Priorities

  • Encourage the continued development of parent programs/meetings to keep everyone informed about changes in curriculum and how they can best help their children learn.
  • Setting our local priorities using the limited funds our small school district receives is an important responsibility and includes regular reviews and updates of the budget to efficiently meet current and future needs.
  • Explore options of working with other small school districts to see if there is a cooperative way to compete with larger districts that benefit from economies of scale.
