My Top 3 Priorities

  • Use my experience to guide our county office of education so it can provide the very best support to local districts as they implement change to improve student achievement.
  • Support the county office’s efforts to provide exceptional programs and opportunities for students with disabilities and those needing an alternative to the traditional school setting.
  • Encourage sound financial planning at the county level so our districts remain solvent and can avoid budget cuts during poor economic times.
