Biographical Information

What policies or programs would you advocate to close opportunity gaps among children in your division and to establish greater equity and access to learning resources for all students?

What steps would you take as a school board member to return state aid to previous levels to provide for more of the costs of local education to be paid from a more diverse tax base than simply local real estate taxes?

For more than 25 years, the way in which student academic performance is measured by the state has been Standards of Learning (SOL) tests, often multiple choice and taken for a few hours on one day. Recently, the state has suggested it might consider other ways in which to measure academic performance. This could include completion of special projects or student portfolios of their work over several years. Would you favor the end of SOL testing in favor of alternate assessments like completion of special projects or student portfolios of their work over several years? What is the best way to measure student academic performance?
