I appreciate your consideration as a candidate for the Indian Prairie School District No 204 Board of Education. Click Here to learn more about me and click here to learn more about my perspectives AND PLANS on key issues facing IPSD 204.
My Candidacy Focuses on 3 Main Points
1) Kids First
As an educational leader, I have always challenged myself and my colleagues to make all their decisions with a focus on KIDS FIRST. Their ability to achieve their full potential while maintaining their social and emotional health will always be paramount in my mind when considering every issue and decision.
2) Safe Choices For All
As long as we are dealing with the Pandemic, every parent deserves to be able to choose what they feel is safest for their family and their students. At the same time, it is the responsibility of IPSD 204 to be more progressive in planning a FULL return to school instead of lagging behind other districts where the ‘In Person’ option has consisted of 5 days a week of face-to-face instruction instead of the current 2 days a week in IPSD 204.
3) Equal Educational Opportunities
IPSD 204 has made great strides working to ensure Equity as it relates to racial and cultural differences and there is still a great deal to accomplish in providing our staff with greater resources so that they are culturally competent leaders. At the same time, our district is also facing Achievement Gaps in many areas related to Special Education and Special Needs students that must be addressed to truly say that we are providing Equal Educational Opportunities for all.
