2012 Candidate profiles


“The IDOE 2012 school report cards for Danville gave our four schools an “A” for the high school and 3 “Cs” for our elementary and middle schools, the lowest scores in the county. We can do better. It is time for a change.

“Specifically, I would like the board to clearly define the vision of this corporation and raise the competitive academic standards with the goal of becoming the best corporation in the county. I want to see greater emphasis on student achievement in an enhanced curriculum that offers more math, science, language, music, and art content. I want resources allocated sufficiently to support this vision and the superintendent held accountable for these goals.

“I want more community involvement at school board meetings and I want all the school principals to attend every meeting with the superintendent to answer board member questions, recognize student achievement, and be available to the public.

“I want to help make our school system the best it can possibly be and ask for your vote Nov. 6.

“Our students are number one. Our students and children are the building blocks for our future. We need to ensure that we equip our students with the tools needed for them to suceed with their goals, plans, and dreams. We need to be good stewards of the taxpayers’ money. We need to make sure that we have and retain the best teachers and administrators, and provide them the support and tools they need to give our students the best education and opportunities. Open communications between the administration, teachers, parents, and school board, should be a priority.
