TEAMWORK

As your Board Member, I will work together with teachers, administrators, staff, and families to advocate for:

  • All children to have access to computers and the internet at home.
  • Small class sizes and equity among schools to be achieved and maintained.
  • All children to benefit from a balanced curriculum that includes art, music, physical education, science and technology.
  • Class-size reduction and certified tutors to help schools who serve a large population of low-income families.

INCLUSIVITY

As your Board Member, I pledge to:



  • Represent all constituents and children in the District with integrity, fortitude, and unwavering courage.
  • Ensure ESL students achieve success through a multi-tiered system of language and academic development.
  • Work to provide after-school programs that give all students a safe and productive environment.
  • Support anti-discrimination policies across the board.

EQUITY

I believe in resource allocation based on an individual child's needs. As such, I will work to ensure:

  • Children have access to differentiated instruction and additional services according to their needs.
  • All low-income students receive academic preschool, academic summer school, before-school breakfast and after-school homework assistance.
  • Social workers are assigned to assist families in obtaining medical, dental, and other services based on needs of the child.
  • Children who have physical or learning challenges will receive what they need to not only thrive, but fully contribute to their education. 

TRUSTEESHIP

As a good steward of your vote, I will commit to serving as the community's trustee advocating for all students' best interests and holding stakeholders accountable by:


  • Maintaining a stable financial foundation for the District with an open and prudent budget process.
  • Supporting environmentally friendly policies, healthy food programs, and school safety programs.
  • Advocating for the provision of psychological services and social/emotional learning experiences for all children.
  • Ensuring local union labor is contracted for all applicable JCPS building and maintenance projects.

DEMOCRACY

As someone who appreciates the unique position of our elected school boards as a vehicle for community control of local schools, I will:



  • Foster a spirit of mutual respect and focus on what is best for children among my fellow Board members and within the administrative team.
  • Foster community involvement through district committees, events, public meetings, and online resources.
  • Advocate for an open and transparent process of student/family choice and advance placement assignments.
  • Defend public schools as a critical institution and fight for control of JCPS to remain within the community, knowing that we are best positioned to grow and strengthen the quality of our children's education.

LEADERSHIP

I will listen, seek information, involve all stakeholders and work to build a consensus on the issues that matter to all by:



  • Encouraging an evidence-based and data-driven approach to decision making at all levels.
  • Providing appropriate professional development for teachers and administrators while respectfully including them in the curricular decision-making process.
