Academic Excellence

As co-founder of the BUSD Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Committee, I'll continue to work to ensure our district's workforce grows in professionalism and diversity while focusing on strategies to support underperforming and disadvantaged students. I will also continue to support and develop ongoing professional development and resources for teachers to enhance their instructional practices.

Fiscal Responsibility & Funding

The urgency of the current state budget and program cuts,

coupled with economic uncertainty and enrollment attrition, is impacting our school's budget.

We must work together to secure equitable educational funding and ensure the school

district's budget is managed effectively and efficiently with priorities for essential programs

and services. It's crucial that we develop a strategic plan for the growth and sustainability of

the school district, starting with passing the November District Bond.

 School Safety

Partnering with city law enforcement, other agencies, and programs, I will continue to work on regularly updated safety measures to protect students and staff.

Environmental Sustainability

Promote environmentally sustainable practices and

education in the district while investing in energy-efficient infrastructure and technologies.

Continue & Grow

Increase mental health resources, career technical courses, partnerships with colleges and universities, offer more dual enrollment programs to prepare more students for higher education, and finalize the BUSD Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation and Incubator, partnering with the city, which I started last year.
