On November 7th, I am running for re-election to the Wayzata School Board. It has been an honor to serve our community as a board member for the past four years. My commitment and passion for public education and doing what’s best for kids is stronger than ever. I have learned a tremendous amount from Wayzata teachers, parents, students, administrators, legislators, community members and school board colleagues. I plan to use all I’ve learned to continue to contribute to the district’s educational and operational excellence.
The top issues facing Wayzata public schools are well defined in our strategic road map. They include continued expectations for high achievement for all students, with no exceptions so that student achievement will not be predictable by any demographic classification including race, socioeconomic status, gender or disability. An exceptional education for each and every student must also foster independence through personalization while supporting health and well-being.
The steady enrollment growth in the district is a testament to the tradition of hard work and successful education in our community. I am grateful for our thriving enrollment and will continue my dedication to meeting the needs of our growing student population. As a board member, my response to this issue has been to join my board colleagues in approving three ballot questions for a community vote on November 7th.
