I am now the chair of both the Parent Access and Engagement Committee and the Committee on Special Education. These committees will help me to continue to lead the fight for encouraging parent engagement by strategies such as streamlining the process for the use of school facilities and eliminating the cost of background checks for parent volunteers. As chair of the Special Education Committee, I will be able to continue supporting the rights of parents
In the Special Education IEP process I prioritize my passion for raising awareness and training to help staff and families identify kids with Dyslexia early and provide interventions.
Finally, I will continue to fight for transparency and effective oversight of all schools, including independent charter schools, and will combat the well financed efforts to privatize public education. Public education is supposed to serve everyone, not just those who are convenient.
