Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • I want to see the students have a safe and wonderful educational experience in the Bonsall School District. The Bonsall School District is in a small community and the students should be involved more in the community.
  • I would like to have the students prepared for life after school by having their educational experience open doors to their fields of interest.
  • I would like to have the board meetings spend some more time working on the budget and verifying accountability for expenses.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de The League of Women Voters North County San Diego (4)

What are the pressing problems of this school district, in your opinion, and what experience do you bring to the Board that will help address these problems?
Respuesta de Eric Ortega:

The financial situation within the District needs to be addressed.  I bring an objective balance to the board.  I have not been on the board for a long time and that gives me the opportunity to persue facts and data without having personal bias towards past practice.  

What is your view of charter schools?
Respuesta de Eric Ortega:

Since charter schools have different standards, the district can implement educational philosophies that may reach students in a more creative and personal manner allowing for smaller class sizes and a more personal instructional format.

Should the district curb its school choice initiatives (for students who are not in charter schools), so that more students stay in their neighborhood schools? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Eric Ortega:

I believe it is the district's responsibilty to provide an education for their students, however if working with another district that may provide an opportunity for an educational experience more suited to an individual student, this avenue should be sought and supported.

Are there school discipline strategies or behavioral support programs that you find appealing alternatives to exclusionary or punitive discipline? If so, which ones, and why?
Respuesta de Eric Ortega:

I am a believer in the fact that interaction with the Parents or Guardians of the students is critical.  I think their should be more parent teacher conferences each school year, at least 3.  If a student has a problem at school the parent or guardian should be involved as soon as possible.  If the parents will allow community leaders to get involved, (i.e. ministers, coaches, etc...) the philosphy of "It takes a villiage to raise a child" could be implemented.  I believe in the students right to privacy but sometimes the strictness of these laws prevents needed support for the child.

I also feel that teachers should be local teachers or at least have a working knowledge of the local community.  This will help teach and instructor to interact with students and family members of students.  Laws regarding this issue have been shown to be successful in other states.
