Upgrade and Expand High Schools
Upgrading the quality and increasing the number of district high schools will enable a better classroom and academic experience, provide higher-quality educational resources, and increase participation in the arts and athletics.

Our schools no longer face insolvency, and the Simi Valley Unified School District has received its highest-ever bond rating (AAA). Teachers and students have greater access to technology. Students are better prepared for college and high-tech careers. I will continue to push for improvements in board governance and school management.
Technology in the classroom
I led the plan to deploy of dozens of new technologies including WiFi networks, 800 smart projectors and 17,000 Chromebooks. Every student has benefitted from these technologies.
