I believe:

  • Physical safety is the highest priority.

  • The primary work of education is accomplished through curriculum and instruction.

  • Beneath this work, school is a place where all children can flourish.

  • Extraordinary teachers are our most valuable assets.

  • Success hinges on stewardship of finances, talent, facility and time.

  • Communities thrive with effective and relentless communication.

  • Great Boards are unique in experience, rich in ideas, effective in execution and focused on community.
