“My professional success follows from my education. I have been fortunate to receive the attention and care of so many people – beginning with my parents - who are knowledgeable, committed to my growth, and willing to share what they know. I can think of no better way to thank the people who helped me explore my talents than to pay forward my own efforts for the benefit of the next generation. As a board member, I will seek input from everyone who will provide it, govern responsibly, treat people respectfully, and help ensure that the resources available are used as effectively as possible.”

 Generally speaking, regular Board meetings are meetings "held in public" to accomplish the Board's business, with a time for public comment reserved at the beginning of each meeting. Meeting Agendas are posted at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting at the District Office, the U.S. Post Office in Wittmann  and here on the District's website.

We Believe
  • Students are the number-one priority.
  • The Board conveys the educational wants, needs, and desires of the community, and establishes policies accordingly.
