Questions & Answers

1. How would you implement your top 3 priorities for the District? Please include specifics and how you plan to involve the school community.

I would create a Task Force from both Districts, business leaders, and the community to study in depth the actual Programs and Curricula in the new merged District; to incorporate not only the present information available within, but also possibly outside the District. There should then be enough data available to choose the best curriculum and programs for our children.

Once these curriculum is in place and our programs expanded, in order to be inclusive; we must take every step necessary to avail our parents of this information and assist the child whichever way we can to help in its assimilation.

As a Board Member, it is my obligation to present my ideas to my fellow Board Members and mutually agree on a course of action to take.

I would reach out to the parents, business leaders; military personnel, retired and elderly residents; and every entity living or doing business in Mountain View and ask them to assist us in educating our children; through their experiences, time, effor and money. I would ask them all to join hands in educating our children, our future.

Responses to questions asked of each candidate are reproduced as submitted to the League, but formatted for Web display.

We use the same word counting rules as the Registrar of Voters, e.g. Los Altos is one word.
