Jackie Moran On the Issues
Issue statements by candidates are quoted from public media statements either direct or edited for brevity.
I am working to create more specialty academies in our high schools that prepare our students for the fields in their future. Academies would pair students' interests with current industry needs: filmmaking/editing, engineering, medicine, criminal justice/law and environmental sciences, for example.
I support effective and early intervention tools to be available in each of our classrooms for those with learning difficulties. We must improve the process of identifying and accommodating our children who are at risk.
My long career as a local business owner with an accounting background also gives me insights into budget and finance. Education finance is complex, and my experience helps safeguard taxpayer dollars. I have worked to balance school district needs with the expectations of the taxpayer.
I‘ve collaborated with different administrative staff, coaches, teachers and parent organizations across the district and have worked to improve the process wherever I could. It is my priority to represent our community on the board from a parent’s perspective.
