My Top 3 Priorities

  • What is best for students is what drives all my decisions and it is what motivates my work as a Board Member. That includes the classroom instruction, materials, the facility, their teachers, the administration at their school site, and much more.
  • The financial well-being of our school district. The reality is that current funding of schools has only brought us back to the funding levels prior to the budget cuts in 2007 and 2008. This still puts California school funding below the average
  • Facilities and the ongoing implementation of the Measure Q Bond. While we educate today’s students we must consider what our district will be in the future. I believe we must monitor the progress and planning in a forward-thinking manner.
