Why are you running for this office?
***TAKING CARE OF OUR OWN*** Our maintenance and nutrition staff are gravely underpaid. These individuals represent the backbone of our schools that keep our schools running especially during the pandemic. It is a grave injustice that we cannot do right by them by providing them decent wages. **Restructure SAC (in school & out of school suspension)** Currently students with disciplinary issues are kept here with meaningless work to do and being forgotten. **Making sure the school Bands obtain newer uniforms more often** Our band kids march and perform in their band uniforms in these hot temperatures. Naturally sweating is bound to occur. We make our kids wait 2-3 years for new uniforms, and in the meantime force them to continue using old uniforms. **Enhancing our communication with Americans with disabilities** Introducing American Sign Language as an available course in Aldine. Allowing our students the opportunity to communicate with people from all walks
