Excellence and Diversity
Culver City schools should have as their mission excellence in education for all students of every background without exception. We should celebrate our diverse community of students. Our goal should be to strive to make Culver City schools the best public schools in all of Los Angeles County.
Safe and Clean Schools
Our schools should be safe and clean for all students. Safety means having sufficient resources and adult supervision available on campus when needed. We need to allocate resources so that restrooms and public spaces are clean and well-maintained. Every part of our facilities should reflect the pride we have in our schools.
Listening to Parents
Parents should be informed and consulted about the important decisions that affect our children at Culver City schools. Parents’ views should be listened to and respected. I will be a voice for parents on the School Board.
Challenge All Students
Every student deserves to be challenged in school with rigorous, appropriate classes in higher grades. “One-size-fits-all” is not the model for top quality education.
Serving Special Needs Students
Public schools have a special responsibility to ensure that special needs students receive the best education we can provide. That means listening to parents of students with special needs and insuring that inclusion efforts are fully funded.
Smaller Class Sizes
Smaller classes is the best way to ensure equity in achievement in all of our schools. I will prioritize funding for smaller classes.
Supporting Teachers and Staff
Supporting teachers and staff means listening to their needs and meeting them. Our teachers and staff deserve the resources they need to be successful, including supplies and compensation.
