In your opinion what is the most critical issue facing the school board at this time and how do you plan on addressing it?
Our school boards most critical issue is the lack of funding per student in our schools. Although securing more funding this year is impossible, I plan on evaluating where our board spends the little money we do have, and looking for cost saving measures within our operating budget. I will lobby government for more funds as per the statistics I will aquire through my research. We need fresh perspective on how to allocate the funds we have so I will be using all interested partner groups, in gathering and utilizing a broad range of ideas and perspectives to put forth a solid plan of action. Our community will have a completely transparent plan of action. Finding ways to stretch our funding further while not sacrificing our kids education will be my number one goal. Voting for Jeany Della Siega for Comox school trustee will help in achieving that goal.
