“I am running for school board to ensure our school district remains focused on serving the best interests of our students, maintaining fiscal discipline, and providing accountability for how our schools are managed.”

Learning and Safety

It is no secret the last two years of disruptions have had a significant impact on student learning and development. As our schools move forward from the pandemic, it is essential that our district remains focused on ensuring educational programs are having the desired outcomes, students are building meaningful and trustworthy relationships, and our school buildings are providing safe and healthy learning environments.

Fiscal Responsibility

State and federal special education funding shortfalls and increased operating expenses have put significant pressure on our school district’s ability to meet the needs of our students. It is critical that our district leaders work with legislators on long term funding solutions while also continuing to exercise strong fiscal discipline.

Thanks Mike Slavik for the conversation tonight about the county’s plans for the intersection of Flagstaff and Hwy 50.

I look forward to hearing whether your team can find a way to test the new traffic pattern by temporarily blocking the ability to turn left on to Hwy 50 for a sample of peak traffic times (i.e. high school dismissals). If that winds up being feasible, I think it could help alleviate some of the concerns about the project that are being raised by parents and community members.
