Positions

KEEPING STUDENTS & STAFF SAFE
Children are priceless and school buildings should be protected like airports and courthouses.  All schools should have a highly trained law enforcement officer to protect them from intruders with a single point of entry.

VOCATIONAL EDUCATION
Vocational careers must be valued, celebrated and encouraged.  Students should be given more opportunities at earlier ages to learn about vocational careers and be provided the tools to explore and be prepared for entering the workforce after high school.

PARENTAL RIGHTS 
School Administration should encourage parental input in the education of their children. Curriculum, books, topics, classroom exercises should all be transparent to the parent. Parents should be a key partner with school administration and teachers. No child should be given R rated materials without parents giving permission. There should also be full transparency on any policy changes with the opportunity for parents and the public to provide input.

MORE RESOURCES IN THE CLASSROOM TO HELP MANY STUDENTS CATCH UP
65% of non-academy Bayside incoming 9th graders are starting out high school below reading level. At Bettie F. Williams Elementary school African-American students are have a 12% lower reading ability than white students. Reading scores have been dropping for five years around the state. I consider this an serious problem that can not be tolerated. More resources and reading specialists are needed. Teachers deserve a raise and help. The Virginia Beach school system has a budget surplus as does the state. This can be done and should be a focus. We need to take care of our teachers to help our students prepare for their best future.
