How can the School Board work more effectively with the Board of Supervisors on funding issues?
The working relationship will improve to some degree if the School Board communicates clearly the goals it has set and the cost of achieving those goals. Ultimately a real improvement requires stronger support of the schools from the public.
Like any relationship, improvement requires the willingness of both sides, and in the rhetoric of the current crop of incumbents and challengers for the Board of Supervisors I do not see that willingness. The next School Board must work to avoid and yet be prepared to work in a hostile funding environment.
Educate Loudoun is a new
organization that seeks to improve the education provided to all
students in the county by supporting candidates for the Loudoun County
School Board who will work to offer new educational choices, management
reforms, increased focus on long-range planning and transparency.
Educate Loudoun has endorsed my campaign for re-election
in the Algonkian District. Part of the endorsement process was a
questionnaire. I am publishing my responses to those questions here for
other voters to read and evaluate.
