When I ran for school board four years ago, and in choosing to run again, the primary driver is a passion for public education. My work experience includes elementary and math education, but the bulk of my career has been in local and state government. I worked primarily in the Information Technology world as a training director, project and program manager, and a department head for the Cook County MIS department. I also spent one year as the Interim Cook County Administrator. In those roles I have a great deal of experience in strategic planning, policy, budgets, and solving complex problems. I am an experienced community leader, committed to the success of all Cook County students.
1 Addressing the achievement gap. Minnesota standardized testing shows us that our Grand Portage students are being left behind. This is 25% of our student population. I am committed to policies and actions that address racial equity, so all our students succeed. 2 Fiscal responsibility. Finding ways to fund excellent programming is particularly challenging in a small community, with an aging population. 3 School safety. Physical but also emotional safety. Trust is foundational for learning.
The role of the school board is to hire and oversee the work of the Superintendent, approve the budget, and set policy. Today many would have us secure school buildings like a fort. While physical security is important and necessary, it is also important to ensure the school has a culture where students and staff are valued, bullying is not tolerated, and students learn how to disagree and still be civil. As a board member I will work to prioritize actions that promote a safe environment.
