I am committed to engaging and informing students, families, educators, district staff, and the broader Kyrene community on school board actions and progress. For the past two years, I have been a member of the Kyrene Superintendent Community Council which works, in collaboration with the Kyrene School District, to develop and maintain sustainable goals that align with the district’s strategic plan.
This council has a wide array of community stakeholders which provides the administration with the input needed to bring community goals and district priorities into alignment. I’ve seen how suggestions and issues brought forward by this group have helped shape governing board and administrative decisions. Creating opportunities for community engagement provides a necessary level of transparency that is critical to the functioning of a healthy district. As a governing board member, I will continue to seek out a cross-section of views to guide my decision making.
