Central Bucks School District School Director Region 7

4 YR TERM. A school board is a legislative body of citizens called school directors, who are elected locally by their fellow citizens and who serve as the governing body of each public school district. Each board consists of nine members who serve four-year terms of office. Unlike most other elected officials, school directors receive no compensation for their work. Principal duties include appointing and/or dismissing superintendents, principals and teachers; levying school taxes; purchasing land; locating new buildings; adopting textbooks and courses of study; fixing salaries of teachers and other appointees of the Board.

I am passionate about our community and equipping our students for the future. As a father of three daughters, I understand the importance of a comprehensive, well-rounded, and inclusive education for the future success of our children. 3 main things that are important to me are: *OUR FIRST PRIORITY IS ALWAYS OUR STUDENTS--I believe we are educating our children for their future as parents, academics, humanitarians or other futures in which our children are not only fulfilled professionally but also personally through sports, arts, music or volunteering. In order to do that, we have to ensure we are looking through a wider lens. *MAINTAIN A COMPETITIVE EDGE--for our students, community and parents. Having great schools is imperative to a competitive edge. *FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY-- As parents we want what is best for our children, but as a taxpayer, we need to be cognizant that emotions do not override logic.
In my professional experience, I acquired the following skills to be successful on the school board. *Listening Generously--listen to understand; giving my undivided attention; being present and engaged. *Conflict resolution--looking for a common goal and working together to achieve a win-win. *Looking at things through various angles and recognizing that there are many ways of looking at something and just as many ways of doing those things.

Ensuring that all students and staff feel welcome and valued is a top priority. One of the most important aspects of inclusion is understanding. Understanding different backgrounds and perspectives and how our similarities and differences impact the way in which we view the world is important for our educator community. It is imperative that our teachers and staff understand how the inclusion of all students and their peers makes for a better school community. Given the importance of this topic and based on my professional training, it is not a one-time training--it is a conscious effort to realize and understand. It should be given a high priority--many companies/organizations outside of CBSD give it importance and if we don't, we lose our competitive advantage.
The American Academy of Pediatrics, Bucks County Health Department, PA Department of Health, and CDC are the experts in the field of public health. A consensus amongst these expert organizations is what my family uses to guide our personal health and I would use the same sources to guide my decisions on the school board. While I may not always like the recommendations, I am not a public health expert--these institutions are and should be followed. The current safety plan does not fully incorporate these recommendations and should be modified to do so. It is also important to note that as things change and recommendations change, our school board should change the health and safety plan.
