Transparency & Accountability Are Non-Negotiable
The board has a responsibility to represent the people of the district, serving as a manager between the interests of both educators and parents to ensure a quality education for children within SDUSD and to maintain the highest degree of transparency in all that they do.
This cannot be accomplished if the board does not openly collaborate with both educators and parents, ensuring equal and fair representation.
- Current proposed policies, such as the districts email deletion policy which calls for the annual deletion of emails that are more than a year old, are unacceptable and a step backwards on a board that already lacks transparency.
- If elected to represent SDUSD I will hold quarterly meetings open to both the public and the press to ensure the utmost degree of collaboration and transparency between myself and the people of SDUSD.
- Multiple SDUSD board members are endorsed by various teachers unions. The school board is not an extension of the teachers union. The responsibility of the board is to ensure that the rights of both educators and parents are represented and respected.
- School board elections should be district only with term limits of two to four years in order to ensure that board members remain accountable to the people they are elected to represent, rather than concerning themselves with getting reelected.
