How many years have you lived in the Helena school district?

I have been living in the Helena School District since September 2011.

Why are you running for school board?

I have seen some problem areas for which I can provide some solutions.

What are the biggest issues facing the school district?

The biggest issues seems to concern the budget. One suggestion which should be seriously considered is an early retirement program.

Some people have suggested going to a 4 day school week.

What is the district doing well?

I like the responsiveness which I have seen when crisis situations occur.

What could the district do better?

I have noticed some morale issues which need better attention. An improved team working environment should be developed at the High School level.
