What is your top priority?My top priority is to close achievement gaps that exist within the school district. OPS should be a great school district for all students, not just some. Right now, there are unacceptable achievement gaps both between schools and within schools. Part of the solution is to provide principals and teachers with the support they need to ensure high quality instruction in all classrooms, every day. The job of the school board is to create the conditions that allow for that level of instruction. I intend to maintain a laser focus on creating conditions for high-quality instruction to thrive.
