I believe the COVID-19 pandemic has forced school districts to embrace distance learning due to not being able to assemble in classrooms, but nothing can take the place of in-classroom instruction. It would be good for teachers to use websites for class schedules and maybe even homework submittals. Learning has expanded rapidly to include more websites and technology us, and I would advocate for keeping the school advancing in technology use for the benefit of the students.
I believe that teachers should be trained on looking for aberrant behavior and at risk behavior from students. Students should also know and receive reinforcementt that if a fellow student is behaving more odd than normal or posting violent things on social media, they should feel free to report this to school administration.

I also believe that legislation should be changed so that teachers and administrators that have been trained properly can carry a handgun concealed on their person. Gun-free zones are a target for shooters, and we should work to ensure safety of all in the school.
I believe that it would be beneficial for students to have presentations from guidance counselors regarding outlook for job markets. It would also be good to have college representatives come speak at the school to give an overview of top programs.

Students need to know what the outlook for employment is once they graduate high school, so they can know how to further their education. As a board member, I would advocate to give them the best available options for finding this information.
