Education

What is the function of the local school board?

The function of the school board is to ensure the superintendent is operating the district in compliance with the state and federal education laws, as well as our local board policies.

Who should have the authority to set curriculum and determine resources used in those curricula?

The curriculum is the responsibility of the superientendent, however, as an a sitting school board trustee, I would hope to have an opportunity to offer any suggestions that I believe would benefit our students.

Please rate in order the following priorities in relation to the role of a K-12 public school (omitting any that do not apply): Mathematics, Information Technology, Science, Political Activism, Personal Finances, Gender Identity, Physical Fitness, American History, Critical Race Theory, Language Arts, Art & Music, Vocational Learning, Sexuality, Foreign Language, Social Emotional Learning

When students are taught courses such as Comprehensive Sex Ed (CSE) or Social Emotional Learning (SEL), they must opt-in with written parental permission.

Parents are the ultimate authority in their child’s education and should be able to freely pursue whatever educational options they deem best for their child.

No healthcare diagnosis or treatment, whether mental, reproductive, or otherwise, should be given to a child without first receiving written consent from the parent.

Strongly Agree

The parent should be responsible for teaching their children sexual education and the appropriate age should be decided on by the parent.

If you support the teaching of Sex Ed, please answer the following question: Sexual education should include these topics (list all that apply and add your own, if needed) -- Physical and emotional health outcomes; contraceptive methods; consent; abstinence; sexual orientation and gender identity; human anatomy/the reproductive system; abortion methods and side effects; stages of pregnancy and fetal development; sex acts and pleasures of sex
