My Top 3 Priorities

  • Improving the relationship between the employees and the district management needs to happen to help support students. Happy staff are better for kids!
  • The district is in declining enrollment which makes fiscal solvency a priority. Time to examine what items in the budget can be reduced to allow more funds for students.
  • I plan to fight for more funding in California Schools by working with local leaders and going to lobby in Sacramento.
