My Top 3 Priorities

  • A quality school in every neighborhood so that families do not need to leave their neighborhood for a great education; resources can go to the classroom rather than transportation
  • A broad and challenging with increasingly rigorous requirements for high school graduation so that a San Diego Unified diploma means that a student is prepared to enter college or a technical career
  • Financial responsiblity with more funds going to the classroom rather than to administration
