My goal is to make Grandview C-4 a strong, visionary district through a program of:
Accountability
Openness
Community Engagement

Accountability:

  • I vote “Yes” to the $9 million “No Tax Increase” school bond. It is fiscally responsible.
  • I support the school district’s mission statement:
1. maximize academic achievement
2. maximize personal development
3. by improving teaching, learning and relationships for all
  • I support encouragement for students being involved with school sponsored extra-curricular activities; it leads students to a better connection to the school community and leads to better academic achievement/success.
  • I support prioritizing funds to implement the “Technology Plan”.  This provides a tool to meeting the higher expectations of MSIP 5 (Missouri School Improvement Plan)
  • I support that the annual budget should be viewed as tools to reach student-learning priorities, and the district's spending and practices do not protect sacred cows. 
  • I support the saying: “WHAT GETS MEASURED; GETS IMPROVED”

Openness and Transparency:
  • I support openness and transparency by the school board to be mindful of our accountability to the communities that entrust our children to the school district
  • I support that effective school boards routinely and regularly measure and report the return on investment of the education dollars they spend.
  • I support that effective policy makers today make their greatest gains by asking appropriate questions, and productive boards recognize the self-instructive value in making the following query an ongoing refrain: “What services are we providing to which students at what cost and resulting in what benefits?”

Community Engagement:
  • I support engaging new technology that engages parent’s involvement in providing policy-making input.
  • We should communicate in concerted efforts with the mayor, city council and chamber of commerce the "New Grandview".
  • We need to look to aggressive efforts to increasing private funds (Corporate Sponsorships, Private Grants and additional fund raising through extra curricular activities--Athletics, etc)

I AM PROUD TO BE A BULLDOG!!!!!!!!!!!!

I ask for your vote and your support so that I can work to make a difference bringing our district to world-class status for all students.

Please be sure to vote on April 2 at the municipal election!
