All students in Santa Clara County deserve access to a high quality public education that provides them with strong core academics of reading, writing, math, arts and science, and prepares them for college and careers. Providing a strong, well-rounded education allows our students to grow into future leaders who can contribute to their communities, successfully tackle new problems, and prepare for jobs that don’t yet exist. As trustee, I will:
- Ensure strong core academic programming in every school across the county, including the arts and music, and support college and career preparatory programs;
- Work with our districts to maximize resources, so that they have the means to provide a breadth of curricular offerings;
- Initiate a strategic review process of county programs to ensure our tax dollars are being spent efficiently and effectively and maximize every dollar spent to improve student outcomes.
