Technology is a double edge sword. You will either becomes its master or its slave. The only way to become technology’s master is to develop a high proficiency in basic academic skills. If this is not achieved, you will always be at the mercy of someone else’s values and priorities. Becoming technology’s master, you have the ability to use it to achieve your own priorities and your own goals. Basic academic skills are required to utilize technologies benefits.
The safety of teachers and students will be achieved by training staff in the use of fire arms and personal self defense. This would be done purely volunteer and personal consent bases. The entire community should be made aware that these conditions are present in the school and threats will be dealt with accordingly.
The number one priority of any K-12 educational system is to develop a strong proficiency in basic academic skills. These subjects are reading, oral and written communication, English grammar, math, science and American history. Northwest students currently score below the Nebraska average on the ACT exam. This is not acceptable or fair to our students. This very fact will place our students at a major disadvantage in the 21st Century and must be remedied.
