09/26/2018 24643873 Teachers and student services should be priority #1
09/26/2018 24643809 Equity across all schools throughout the district - true equity - not the “north star” of current DPS admin; committal to high quality neighborhood-based schools that are accessible to all students with qualified, licensed teachers in every classroom; authentic transparency of budgets, including charter and innovation schools; professional educators making decisions vs. policy makers, billionaires, and elitists who have never taught or taught through a faux educator program such as TFA, Chiefs for Change, or affiliations with Broad Academy, Gates and Walton Family Foundations.
09/26/2018 24643595 We put students first when we ensure great school options for all students
09/26/2018 24643552 N/A
09/26/2018 24643553 Making sure that every student has an equal opportunity for education, but also making sure they revive an equal education. Making sure students are challenged, and knowing that all students are at different learning levels and all students come from different backgrounds.
09/26/2018 24643492 Almost impossible to prioritize - the reason I chose budgeting to increase teacher salary and forest services to students is that my hope is that will lead to closing the academic achievement gap, lead to students being ready for college or career. An incredibly close second is early childhood education for all because that will accomplish the same goals as those stated above.
09/26/2018 24643481 It is important to maintain governance diversity with DPS without limiting a great school I’m each neighborhood
09/26/2018 24643480 Ensuring diverse students in every school, not segregated schools based on community economics
09/26/2018 24643434 My top priority is inclusion for students with special needs
09/26/2018 24643419 The next superintendent will put students first and recognize the important role school choice plays in student achievement and success.
