Position Papers
Provide High Quality Instruction Supported by a Strong Professional Development Plan
We must take all steps to ensure that our students are offered a superior educational program that maximizes each student's potential and their ability to make good post high school choices. We must ensure that our students are college prepared and career ready.
Secure Additional Funds and Grants to Support Our Schools
All California school districts struggle with the realities being underfunded and not knowing what their income will be when they are planning for the next year. It is difficult to make long range plans when funding is unstable, underfunded and unknown when planning takes place. Small school districts, such as Redondo Beach, have few choices when making cuts from their budget. Creative solutions and outside funding are needed to augment and support needed instructional programs.
Focus on a Wellness Program the Promotes a Healthy School Environment
It is the responsibility of the School District to continue to explore ways for our schools offer food that has the highest nutritional value and to promote a well-balanced wellness program that includes health and nutrition education, physical education, counseling support, health promotion for staff, and family and community involvement.
