DANVILLE COMMUNITY SCHOOL BOARD

My name is Todd Cloncs and I am excited to announce my candidacy for re-election to the Danville School Board of Trustees. I have lived in the Danville community my entire life; playing in Little League sports as a child, attending Danville schools for 13 years, and choosing to raise and educate my two children here.
I obtained a bachelor’s of science degree from Indiana State University and an MBA from Indiana Wesleyan University. Currently, I am the senior information security advisor at Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.
Additionally, I have served on the Danville School Board of Trustees for the past four years.
These are exciting times at DCSC! Through collaboration between community members, parents, teachers, and administration, Danville has embarked on a transition to the future. The public education system has been stuck in a system that was developed before the first Ford Model-T rolled off the assembly line. Our kids do not learn in the same manner that we learned 40, 30, 20, or even 10 years ago. Our social and economic environments have changed. Our kids learn at a much faster pace than they did when we were in school and are stimulated with technology, smartphones, PCs, Xbox, social media (i.e. Facebook, Twitter), more than we could have ever imagined. They are operating at a faster pace than what our current education system can accommodate. We don’t want to slow them down when they get to school; we want to continue to charge them up.
In our collaborative transition, community members, teachers, and administration have teamed up to produce a new district corporate vision that will guide us well into the 21st century.
