Equitable fiscal resources to meet increasing needs of our students
State and federal monetary resources continue to shrink (and local property tax resources are capped), while the needs of our students continue to increase for a variety of reasons. We need more equitable revenues from the state!
Are we investing enough fiscal resources in technology?
Technology infrastructure and devices for our staff and students that will allow us to take full advantage of integration of technology into instruction in such a way that is sustainable and allows us to be cutting edge in our educational practice.
How do we balance good communication with everyone, but not overwhelm people? People would be happier if they truly knew the major wins, battles, and projects that others were doing across the district, but we don't have a good system for this. Same for communication with families and our community.
I would like to see our successes receive more widespread recognition
By this, I mean both academic successes and extra-curricular successes, and not just sports, but also music, art, drama, etc. Since we sometimes do not have the cooperation of mainstream media outlets, perhaps we need to create our own media. This also extends to communication with alumni.
We need to continue the process of upgrading all of our facilities
The District needs to honor its commitment to renovate and update all of the elementary buildings, creating instructional space for today. We also need to make sure this is done in as efficient process as possible, understanding that District taxpayers have already been hit with high tax increases.
