Our community deserves leadership with new ideas, who will empower the voices of parents and our community.
We will prioritize excellence in core academics, facilities for 21st century learning, and fiscal responsibility to halt tax increases. We believe in accountability of the board and administration through transparent communication. We respect parents’ fundamental role and responsibility for teaching moral values and making health decisions.
