As a realtor, I serve clients who are buying homes in many different cities. They need information about the school district where they are buying. I need to be able to communicate the education score and status of that school district for them. I've developed relationships with the leaders of the school district in which I am selling homes. Having this knowledge allows me to comfortably share with my clients the information they need to make a home buying decision based on that school district.
My goal as a member of the school board will be to set policy that will direct our students to an increase in their performance levels. Our school district must develop standards that will have parents wanting to buy homes and settle in SSF because of the great education opportunities. I believe I can be an integral member of making this happen.
