BOARD OF SCHOOL DIRECTORS
BALD EAGLE AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT
(Vote for one.)
I believe that parents and community are the key to fulfilling the needs that lack of funding cannot provide. The schools with the most success in the U.S. are the schools that have a high percentage of positive parent/community involvement. It is not the amount of money spent on each student.
Having four children, I have been very active in the school for many years and attended many board meetings before deciding to run for office. Having children in the school gives me an advantage of knowing what goes on in the school and a vested interest in the decisions that we make.
Several years ago, things were very tight and we sent every budget back to all area coordinators and asked everyone to find 5 percent they could do without for one year. Everyone cut what they could, some 2-3 percent, some 9-10 percent. We saved enough to make things work for that year and got back on track the following year.
