What are my goals?
Revisit the Blueprint for Schools. Re-Open Kaiser Elementary school and follow up with Roots Academy parents. Actively support our Community Schools and a CSSS department in the budgeting process.
Relieve Oakland from the responsibility of repaying the state loan of $100 million which the district never requested. And for which the funds have not been accounted.
Advocate for Restorative Justice programs.
Review OUSD Administration employees' organization chart and hold department heads responsible for managing their portion of the budget.
Advocate for the closure of 1000 Broadway and relocate administrative personnel to the schools throughout the district. They should be closer to the people they serve and it will save millions of dollars each year.
Equalize the way all resources are provided across the district. Ensure equity in and the speed with which the distribution of computers and internet access happens. Tech support should be provided by non-teachers so teachers can teach.
Visit with each school and PTA in person or via Zoom.
