Council Rock School District School Director Region 2 (4 YR Term)

A school board is a legislative body of citizens called school directors, who are elected locally by their fellow citizens and who serve as the governing body of each public school district. Each board consists of nine members who serve four-year terms of office. Unlike most other elected officials, school directors receive no compensation for their work. Principal duties include appointing and/or dismissing superintendents, principals and teachers; levying school taxes; purchasing land; locating new buildings; adopting textbooks and courses of study; fixing salaries of teachers and other appointees of the Board.

The greatest issue for our district is rising costs, which we have been addressing in creative ways. For example, we joined a consortium of districts for the purpose of managing the costs of pharmacy benefits, which is saving money.
In addition to my nearly four years on the board, and my year as President, I have held director-level positions at two Big Ten universities and Educational Testing Service.
