What are your priorities ?

A:

My top 4 priorities:

  1. Advocate for full-funding of public education and provide guidance to the Legislature about funding priorities.
  2. Develop an assessment process that is not a burden to the system (unlike SBA) and focuses on providing information to help teachers, families, school buildings, and school districts improve our service to ALL children.
  3. Support schools and systems to close opportunity gaps.
  4. Promote innovative/alternative school models to meet the varied needs of the students we serve (examples: School of the Arts, Science and Math Institute, Montessori, Big Picture Schools, Technology Access Foundation).
