My focus for OUSD includes the following:

  • We must address declining enrollment, which impacts the resources we have available to tackle issues such as class size and implementing innovative programs.
  • We must create a functional school board that puts students' success as its top priority and deserves the confidence of the public.
  • We must highlight the good works within the district, while taking an honest assessment of those things we need to improve upon.
  • We need to ensure that OUSD is fiscally responsible with Measure S dollars and they are spent on projects the voters intended.
  • We need to ensure the safety and security of our students.
