To better acquaint all Crescenta Valley registered voters with the Glendale Unified School District Board of Education candidates for which they can vote in the April 3 election, the Crescenta Valley Sun presented all candidates with questions concerning the district's schools.
Businessman/ParentWhat do you think is the primary challenge for the district?Although the District faces declining enrollment, funding, and the current labor issues, I feel the biggest challenge is developing a compelling long-term vision for our schools that strategically plans to meet the educational needs of our students today and into the future. I believe that the board's primary function is to work with our parents, teachers, students, the superintendent, and the community to think big and dream big for the sake of our children. We need to have a vision for what a graduate of Glendale schools looks like and is capable of; we need to have a vision for how the district communicates and integrates with our parent, students, and community; we need to have a vision that encourages the development of well-rounded students who are involved in the arts and physical activity. It's my intent to bring Big Vision and then work hard to make it happen.
