The decisions that school boards across America make now impact every student's success in public education. Higher academic achievement, encouraging all post-graduate pathways as well as life skills training are incredibly important for our young people and future generations. While our district's strengths are many (i.e. good communication between teachers and parents, experienced and caring staff, variety of academic programs and extra curricular activities, well maintained buildings and facilities), issues remain that must be addressed (i.e. overcrowding at a number of our schools, non-objective teaching of subject matter in classrooms, need for careful and common sense spending of taxpayer dollars, a more balanced school board with diverse professional backgrounds and perspectives that better represent the community). Carolyn is running to tackle the issues and drive toward solutions for Lake Stevens School District citizens, parents and families.
Carolyn is committed to:
1) Supporting teachers, staff and fellow board members to strengthen the district's mission and purpose;
2) Working to create better transparency between the school board and district parents/families;
3) Carefully managing district budgets that reflect responsible and appropriate spending.
Above all else - Carolyn pledges to work for **you** - taxpaying citizens, school district parents and families. She will work diplomatically and respectfully, making sure your voices and perspectives are heard and understood.
