Littleton has a good school district, one of the top districts in the state. I want to help make our district excellent. How? Through leadership with a focus on high expectations, accountability, continuous improvement, and collaboration.
LPS is getting better. During the past four years we have made several important investments:
1. Through our weekly late-starts and professional learning communities we are investing in our teachers as they work as they work to serve all students.
2. With the support of the LPS voters we are investing $300 million into our physical infrastructure.
3. Investing in our secondary students by changing our secondary start times to fit with recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
4. Investing in our community by affirming that “All means All” when it comes to students that are welcome and supported in LPS schools.
5. Supporting our families by making the the school choice process (starting in fall 2019) easier for parents by instituting random lotteries for open enrollment instead of first-come first-served.
6. Investing in district operations through a four-year process to update district policies.
There is no silver bullet to improve our schools, instead improvement comes from the slow and steady focus on improvement by district leadership, faculty and staff. As a school board member, I have used my position to support leadership, faculty and staff as they work to serve all students.
Tell me about our schools' successes and challenges.
