Board members are more than policy-makers and administrators; they are advocates for students and their parents and entrusted to engineer a better future.
An effective school board has a number of important responsibilities—from policymaking to leadership decisions—to ensure that their school is the best that it can be. Some of these responsibilities include:

The school administration and the current school board state that CRT is not being taught in the schools. I believe that that the CRT teaching and all the other acronyms that fall under it have no place in our school system. If examples were brought up showing where it was being taught, I would push to have it removed from the system.
I honestly had to look up what gender theory was. To me there are only 2 genders.
When a parent asks the board a question, no one ever really responds or follows up. They don't really care to either. In fact, if you watch some of the past school board meetings online you will see some absent members, from time to time (some more than others). I have even seen them messing around on their phones during public comments. Point is they don't try to find out the answers or even try to address our concerns. However, with a person on the board that will be a voice for the parent, we will be in a better position to get answers and follow up to the questions we all have!
So, to sum things up more accountability and follow up to parent's questions and concerns.
I do not support any sort of referendum. In the state of Indiana, Brownsburg schools are towards the bottom regarding funds received, on average, per student. I would work with school officials to increase those funds through grants and other methods. We currently receive and average of $511 less per student that the average school district. With our current student base that equals over $5,000,000 in funding.
I agree, there are pros and cons to cameras in the classroom. If that sort of policy were to be implemented, I would think there should be restrictions on the viewing of those recordings. There should be a set of policies and procedures in place on who, when, and where the videos could be viewed.
The first step to addressing bullying is to talk about it, as it is a very real thing. Whether or not I agree with an individuals viewpoint on a topic does not lessen the fact that they should be heard and have concerns or issues addressed. There also should be ways for students to voice their concerns without fear of retaliation. One way to do that is setup a ‘say something box’. This would allow students to submit their concerns in an anonymous manner.
The school could form some sort of a bullying prevention committee. They are on the front lines of this issue and would be better suited to help explore options and solutions to the issue.
Also, I am pretty sure that we have a PTA group. The schools can only do so much on their own. If we could get more involvement in the two type of groups mentioned, we would be better prepared to get in front of the issue. Unfortunately, without more support from both parents and school staff the problem will only continue or get worse
My religious views and beliefs are part of who I am. I am putting myself out on a platform for all to see. Either people will like me, or not. I am not going to change me for this position. With that being said, I will work to promote programs that continue to provide a benefit to our schools and our community. I will not push my religion into the school system any more than I would want other sets of beliefs pushed into the schools.
