- Our children are our future.
- We want to meet the needs of all children where they are at.
- Assure Lindbergh remains a top tier school district.
- All children should have a sense of belonging.
I have received reports of some materials being divisive in certain fields. I believe a better approach is to present a fair and balanced program that teaches objectively and respects students’ freedom of conscience, promotes engagement of healthy class debate and a sharing of ideas. I also want to promote the following:
- Restore challenge classes in middle school.
- Research explicit evidence-based instruction in reading for all elementary students
- Focus on excellence in education and making sure we are giving the tools and means to support our teachers
- Restore math intervention, to assist with students who need additional support
- Include Teachers’ input on curriculum selection and near real time feedback as needed
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.
- Publish quarterly district benchmark progress to keep district accountable
- Easy access to all curriculum/lessons on the canvas.
- Publishing of all current curriculum and policy updated on the Lindbergh Website
- Create two-way positive channels of communication, where the community can share feedback and better support the school district.
- Supporting our students emotional and mental well being while also preserving and working with the parents as primary care and decision makers. I believe that many in the community want to be assured that the school district will have every conversation needed with the parents first and upon approval with the students, especially in matters pertaining to a child’s identity, family values and emotional state.
- Questions of moral values, sexual education, and practices as they pertain to a child’s identity, belief, values, convictions, or immutable characteristics are for the parents to shape and/or promote, not the school. (FERPA/PPRA)
