I firmly believe that a well-informed voter will be more engaged and responsible in the election process. One constant request from our community is for more communication and transparency from our district and elected school board members. While on the “campaign trail” I have met voters that don’t understand the responsibility of a board, “Why are they elected?” or how schools are funded. On a more granular level, they don’t realize that school buses are neither “free” nor guaranteed and that many enrichment programs are fully funded by parent support groups such as PTA and Foundations.
To address this, I have created a series of videos that give high-level overviews of #PowayUSD, the board, finances, curriculum and services. Today I am releasing the first one – District Overview.
