Achievment Gap

The board should hire a Superintendent with a proven track record of closing the achievement gap. We should then set measurable goals and monitor them regularly for progress. The board should then hold the Superintendent accountable for the results of each student.

The district can not do this alone, it will require parental and community involvement to see long term results though.

Growth and Enroll...

Beaufort County is a large and diverse district with unique challenges in different areas. While Bluffton is one of the fastest growing communities in the state, other parts of the county have flat or declining enrollment.

I have advocated for a comprehensive study of our attendance lines and current facilities. This study would require community input and would allow the district to ensure that schools are operating efficiently. We would be able to plan future facility needs and minimize constant rezoning of children.
