Transparency in Education

Partners in Excellence
Students, Parents, Teachers & Community

Our children are the future of America and are the greatest asset of every community and we have an obligation to create an educational system that is Student Centered which utilizes all resources in a manner that promotes Educational Excellence and opportunities for our Children.

Budget and labor negotiations that are open will foster trust and create a better partnership amongst all stakeholders and accountability comes from an open process which is in the best interest of our students; our Children.

Sign the petition and support Students and Teachers with an open and accountable school district.
