Seattle School Board Director,
“Every child deserves a welcoming and safe school that values and honors them. "
Holding the District accountable to its equity-centered strategic plan
Although we are bound by budget restrictions, we can and must reflect and respond to the needs of our diverse communities. I will work with district leadership and staff to address the silos between central offices and schools so that we have consistent policy and practice at every school. I will prioritize curriculum adoption and professional development opportunities that advance stated goals around equity and engagement. Specifically, I support:
Adopting an ethnic studies curriculum that empowers students and educators
Offering training for inclusion so that special education students spend more time with their peers
Ensuring greater access to advanced and unique learning opportunities for every student
Examining district and school budgets and resources to maximize positive impacts on equity for our students
