Read the answers from all candidates.

Questions & Answers

1. What effect would the community (charter) schools have on the public schools in your district?

I am not sure how much discussion there has been on this subject to date, but as a board member I would welcome it. I believe it would make us more competitive, and that should help improve test scores.

2. Evaluate the adequacy of support services, beyond state standards, presently provided for special-needs students in your district.

Being the parent of a blind child I have personally felt that the services we as a family have received have been adequate.

3. Has the use of proficiency tests in your school improved the education of students?

All teachers are able to concentrate on the same curriculum. However electives have suffered due to this, having said this I believe that all children have been placed on a level playing field.

Responses to questions asked of each candidate are reproduced as submitted to the League, but formatted for Web display. Candidates were asked to limit their responses to 300 words for all 3 answers. Simple spelling or typographical errors were corrected after confirmation with the candidate.
