- A refocus on the “three R’s” – Reading Writing and Arithmetic
- Choose a curriculum grounded in evidence-based practices to improve literacy rates and offer targeted support for students grappling with dyslexia, such as incorporating phonics instruction
- Provide meaningful tools and support for our teachers along with professional development
- Bring back extensive math intervention and deliver extra tutoring to aid students requiring additional support
- Include Teachers’ input on curriculum selection and near real time feedback as needed
- Restore challenge classes in middle school
Communications & Transparency:
My platform aims to build up the confidence and trust between the district and the community. This can be done with full transparency about what is being taught and following board approved curriculum. I believe that over time this will enhance communication and reduce concerns observed in recent years.
- Provide easy access to all curricula/lessons on the canvas for parents/guardians
- Publishing of board and administration policy on the Lindbergh website
- Restore citizen comments on the Board meetings and create two-way positive channels of communication, where the community can share feedback and better support the school district
- Prioritize tax dollars for improvement and support of student academics while also curbing unnecessary spending.
- Develop and publish measurable district academic goals at the start of every school year
- Supporting our students’ emotional and mental well-being while also preserving and collaborating with parents as primary caregivers and decision-makers is crucial. I believe many in the community want assurance that the school district will have every necessary conversation with parents first. Upon approval, discussions may extend to students, especially in matters related to a child’s identity, family values, and emotional state.
- Questions regarding moral values, sexual education, and practices, as they pertain to a child’s identity, beliefs, values, convictions, or immutable characteristics, are the responsibility of parents to shape and/or promote, not the school (FERPA/PPRA).
