Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Richard believes that diversity is the key to student success and achievement. His  Philosophy is that all students must have professional development and academic discipline. Dual enrollment is a positive outcome for all students. However, with the on-going pandemic safety is the motivation for students, teachers and administration. As a trustee, the number one goal is to ensure that distance learning can be a positive outcome for students and educators. Creating a learning curve that enhances the ability for under-setting the technology platforms that will provide successful experiences through distance learning. Once elected I would seek positive opportunities for student engagement, community involvement and changing board policy due to the pandemic. Thus, creating a guideline for parents and students to know how to navigate with home devices and provide academic tools such as Wi-Fi hubs and or stationary learning centers.
