I believe a good school board is made up from a variety of knowledge and experiences. We draw on these when making decisions faced by the board. I have had previous board experience. I have served on the Onamia Fire and Ambulance. I have worked on call at the Mille Lacs Academy. I enjoy working with our youth. I have more time available due to retirement. I was chosen and completed the Blandin Leadership program. I have the ability to compromise when needed and support the groups decisions.
Hiring great staff. We are as good as our employees. There is a lack of licensed teachers. I will recommend revisiting past board practices addressing these issues. Finance. Schools are facing declining enrolment. This is resulting with declining funding. I would recommend being proactive. Staying aware of spending habits and accounting procedures. Student awareness of college costs. OJT and apprenticeship are different ways of learning and still get good paying jobs.
There are already practices in place. I do not have all the answers. I will work for actively listen to staff, students, parents, and the community. This awareness may avert a problem.
