Keep political issues OUT of our school systems
Decisions regarding our children's education and daily school life should not be politically driven. All
school board decisions should be based on what benefits our students most.
Assure responsible disbursement of funds
The school board is currently well funded. The funds should be used throughout the county, not just in certain areas. I want equal facilities for all of our students. Some of our schools are long overdue for some basic upgrades.
Effectively plan for new school construction
We live in one of the fastest growing counties in the nation. Johnston County has in excess of 6000 new citizens every year. We MUST stay on top of planning for and the building of new schools.
Implement trade training back into our high schools
Plumbers, electricians, HVAC and automotive technicians and many other "trade" jobs will always be in demand. I want to see students have the opportunity to start a successful, well paying career whether or not the choose to attend college
