My Campaign Promises

Promise #1: Later Start Times

I will advocate to change the start times of our schools to be in the best interest of our students.  Research shows that students learn better, attend more regularly and are healthier when classes start after 8AM. There are multiple districts across the country and two in our county that do this, meaning that it can be done. 


Promise #2: Student Lunch and Recess Time

I will work for appropriate lunch and recess times for our students.  I will cooperate with educators to develop solutions so all our students can have enough time to eat lunch and have developmentally necessary recess time. For too many of our students school lunch is the only meal they can count on, we need to make sure they have the time to eat it.  Additionally play is a necessary part of learning and important for our student’s social skills.

Let’s do this for our students!


Promise #3: Community Input

I will work for appropriate lunch and recess times for our students.  I will cooperate with educators to develop solutions so all our students can have enough time to eat lunch and have developmentally necessary recess time. For too many of our students school lunch is the only meal they can count on, we need to make sure they have the time to eat it.  Additionally play is a necessary part of learning and important for our student’s social skills.

Let’s do this for our students!


Promise #4: Advocate for all Students

As a board member I will advocate for all our students. I will work with VPS to improve how we engage families so all opportunities are available to all students.  Our district will work to close our achievement gaps, celebrate the diversity of our student body and effectively overcome language and technology barriers. Because all our students can be successful!
