By Joyce Dalessandro

Candidate for Board Member; San Dieguito Union High School District

This information is provided by the candidate
1.Cast a vigilant eye over all construction and program development throughout the District to ensure continued success and excellence for each of our schools.

2.Preserve the sound fiscal practices that have served the District so well in lean budget years. Continue the implementation of cost saving measures District-wide so that not a single hard-fought education dollar is wasted.

3.Continue the positive, collaborative relationship between Board, administration and District employee associations, with a particular emphasis on open communication, support and the sharing of information.

4.Support faculty and staff in their efforts to successfully close the achievement gap that exists for our under-represented students. Examine the data on programs that are in place; "grow" those that prove successful to all schools in the District

5.Take a leadership role in supporting the multi-district effort to achieve easier, more frequent and more positive access to, and influence over our legislators. Frequent dialogue with our elected officials is critical in light of NCLB requirements, the state budget, un-funded mandates, redundancy of testing, textbooks, and many other education issues.
