My Top 3 Priorities

  • I am concerned about issues such as class size and maintaining high academic standards for students in the district.
  • Art, music programs, athletic teams, and after school programs, are essential in keeping children interested in school, and learning at full capacity
  • Fiscal responsibility, government transparency, and greater accessibility for parents in the decision making process.

Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (1)

A recent law made major changes in the way that the state allocates funding to schools.  What will you do to ensure that the public understands your local control formula for school spending and your plan to measure outcomes?
Answer from Michael D. Lelieur:

I want to be the Voice of the parents. I will hold monthly community meetings with parents to gather their imput on any issues that they want heard by the board.
