VTA Candidate Questionnaire

  1. Why have you decided to run for the school board?

  2. How are you educating yourself on issues that are most important to students and educators/support staff? What do you think are the most important issues for each group?

  3. How will you ensure that the teachers/staff members have a role in providing input for the decisions that the school board makes?

  4. As we transition to “post-pandemic” education in VCSD, what difficulties do you anticipate? How would you envision using your role as a board member to support that transition?

  5. What should the long-term priorities be for our district? What do you think should look differently for VCS in 5 years?
