We must focus on goals that empower each child to achieve their full potential.
We Must Expect Excellence
Students and teachers need a healthy, functional organization guided by thoughtful, effective leadership to transform our schools into the best in the country.
Offer Real School Choice
Simplify the school choice application process and increase
access to strong neighborhood schools and specialized
programs to best support our children's needs.
Provide Life-Relevant Education
Graduates must be ready for higher education and meaningful
employment, which includes access to college-level courses technical training, and workforce development. Coursework that teaches real-life skills will help develop successful adults.
Responsible Financial Management
As a billion-dollar, taxpayer-funded organization,
CCD needs a board with experience navigating complex
programs and finances. Effective and equitable allocation of
resources will enable leaders to address the specific
needs of schools, teachers, and students.
Value Teachers as Professionals
We must respect teachers as professionals and acknowledge
that they are subject matter experts in education. They deserve fair compensation, access to tools and resources, and support from CCSD, school administration, and our community.
