My Commitment to the Community

I WILL WORK TO IMPROVE READING LEVELS & GRADUATION RATES

We have models of high academic achievement at all levels in our own school system. We can implement these models in all of our schools. Let's build on the successes we have demonstrated.

I WILL PROMOTE QUALITY CURRICULA AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR EDUCATORS

Too often the knowledge of school does not reflect the worldviews and histories of all our students. When children have access to accurate and inclusive curricula, it becomes possible to build trusting, caring, and productive relationships with students and families that lead to excellence.

I WILL ADVOCATE FOR POLICIES & PRACTICES THAT SUPPORT STUDENTS ACADEMIC, SOCIAL, & EMOTIONAL GROWTH

A review and revision of policies and practices are in order. Those that are not based on evidence of effectiveness must be changed at all levels of the system.
