Priorities


Have you ever felt that your suggestions towards important school issues (e.g. redistricting) have not be heard or information is shared after it's too late to make a change. As a parent of two kids ages 14 and 11 in the district, Jay is running to get elected to the board to get the collective voices of all the parents heard towards better education for our kids. His four pillars for Parkland are:

Getting Parents' voices heard

Collective ideas of the parents can bring a postitive change to our community and to our school district

As a School Board Member, I will:

  1. Have an open door policy to get parents' voices heard. Survey parents on how they feel on an idea, before any major board vote.

  2. Work with parents, administrators & teachers to solve the rampant vaping/juuling crisis.

  3. Improve safety in our schools by investing in public safety officials and mental health professionals.

Improving Preparedness For Life After School

Our kids can learn so much from Parkland alumni and local business leaders about how to prepare for college and have practical experince in their domain of choice

As a School Board Member, I will:

  1. Start a virtual alumni mentorship program for all high school kids.

  2. Work with local colleges and universities to provide admission guidance.

  3. Work with local business leaders and professionals to create an apprenticeship program.

  4. Start a volunteer parent council which will assist the guidance office at high school level towards above programs.

Better Fiscal Responsibility

We can't just keep riasing taxes indefintely, there has to be accountability towards the money we spend today. We need to use our limited resources wisely

As a School Board Member, I will:

  1. Work hard to ensure we manage the threat that cyber charter schools pose to budgets in our district

  2. Make sure we use technology solutions to make education better while still keeping our taxes in check.

  3. Work with parkland alumni and local business leaders to help with mentorship opportunities for our kids that make them better prepared for life.

  4. Work tirelessly on uplifiting Parkland's state education rankings thereby not just helping our kids education but also preserving our property values.

Uplifting District's State Rankings

GreatSchhols.org has our high school rating as a 7/10. This has an significant effect on the biggest investment that most people have, their property values. We have a good school district but we can't rest on our laurels. Striving to improve should always be on the agenda

As a School Board Member, I will:

  1. Ensure proper resource allocation towards our superstars in academics, sports and arts.

  2. Run micro-targeted education programs to address districts' problem areas.

  3. Create district wide tutoring system to help struggling students.

  4. Develop student leadership programs that enables our kids to learn accountability and responsibility.
