Position Papers
We need term limits, campaign contribution limits, a Board that doesn't meddle in adminitrative matters and that looks at things with a critical eye. We need a Board that only represents students and families of the district above all others, especially the special interests that are financing the current Board members. We need a Board that will respond to the Grand Jury Report and one that can embrace the concept of "Shared Governance". WE NEED CHANGE.
