I have worked in education for 25 years, serving in a wide variety of roles. The positions include as a coach, administrator, and instructor. Just as importantly, I believe strongly in the values that are the basis for public education. Honesty, integrity, transparency and a commitment to ALL learners. In Winona's District 1, there is only one candidate who brings a progressive mindset and commitment to all of Winona's families. Pete Watkins
1. Learn about the WAPS referendum plan from the board perspective. I have a strong understanding from a tax-payer and parent viewpoint. It is important that all newly elected board members be brought up to speed. 2. Return the concept of financial and operational transparency to the WAPS administrative culture. Teachers, families, taxpayers and the public want to know how decisions are made, where money is spent and how we "got there", so to speak.
Our teachers need to the tools to teach and our students need the freedom to learn. That includes a safe school environment, both in the physical buildings and online. A major part of that is working with our community to have properly training persons in our buildings and holding our administration accountable for meeting those standards.
