Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not be a resource for instruction or services in the school.

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Disagree   

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

Agree   

School districts should be able to use taxpayer money for lobbying the state legislature.

Strongly Disagree   


Religious Liberty

School districts should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.

Strongly Agree   

At school, students should be able to speak freely and civilly about matters of conscience and faith, including Christianity.

Education

What is the function of the local school board?

To collectively work with the superintendent and local schools to set goals, problem solve, and ultimately put all district students in the best possible position to achieve academic success.

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

I believe the district should set curriculum guidelines and standards for the district schools while still allowing individual schools the freedom to implement that curriculum in a way that best suits their students.

Please list 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

Language Arts Mathematics Science American History Physical Fitness Information Technology Foreign Language

Our state should participate in the nationwide Common Core standards for high-school graduation.

Disagree   

Schools should use Social Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum and resources to teach emotions, values, and relationships.

Agree   

I support the teaching of the 1619 Project emphasizing slavery and racism as the foundation of American history.

Disagree   

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

Agree   

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.

Strongly Agree   


Values

No school official should be involved in the sexual transitioning of a student. All issues on this subject should be referred to the parents of the student.

Strongly Agree   

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality that is necessary for our system of limited government.

Agree   

Teachers should not use alternative names and pronouns without parental permission.

Agree   

Therapy to help children turn from unwanted same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria should be banned.

Agree   

I support allowing students to use public restrooms, showers, and changing rooms, and to participate in athletic competition based on the gender with which they identify instead of biological sex.

Strongly Disagree   

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   

Who is responsible for teaching sexual education to children, and what is the appropriate age when it should be taught?

Students should have the opportunity to learn factual basic sexual education in school with parental consent at the age of 13-15.

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

Human anatomy Consent Physical and emotional health outcomes Contraception Abstinence
