Peoria Unified School District

EZAZ.org provides voter education and does not endorse candidates.

1. Are you a precinct committeeman? If yes, for how long? 


yes, for one year I believe 


2. Tell us a bit about yourself. What made you run for school board? 


Did not answer. 


3. Do you support sexual education of children in the classroom? At what age do you believe this is appropriate, and do you believe that a parent should have the opportunity to opt out? 


No, I don't support this and yes parents have a right to opt out of anything 


4. Do you support the idea of parents being the sole stakeholders in their children’s lives? 


yes 


5. What is your position on critical race theory, social-emotional learning, LGBTQ inclusion, and equity issues in the classroom? What do you know of Bloom365 and Corwin Press and what are your opinions? 


I will never support CRT, SEL or any other words they come up with. I am against transgender students in bathrooms they identify with and will give them an accommodation of using the nurse's bathroom. We should not be focused on sexuality of students and instead focus on an academic education for the students. I will vote along with Devon Updegraff-Day to break all ties with BLOOM365 in the Peoria Unified School District. Corwin press is a publishing company that focuses more on equity/SEL then academic achievement. I will work to bring in other options for curriculum choices like Hillsdale College curriculum 


6. Based on the limitations and powers of a school board member, what’s your platform? 


Transparency, Academics and Parental Rights 


7. What do you believe to be the biggest issue impacting K-12 students in Arizona? 


Academic struggles for students 


8. How do you think the state should support public education? Do you believe in expanding school vouchers? 


I believe in school choice for all children and where the parents want to send their child. 


9. Do you have a plan to fund renovations of schools in your area that are run down? 


We have been looking into grant programs for schools that are in need of repairs. 


10. Do you have a plan to address the shortage of teachers? 


yes 


11. Do you support allowing retired military or police officers, who pass background checks, to work or volunteer in our schools to prevent mass shootings? 


yes!!! We would like an SRO officer/retired military in every elementary school and high school for protecting our students. 


12. Please feel free to add any additional information you would like voters to know about your candidacy. 


I will stand with Devon Updegraff-Day to bring transparency, academics and parental rights. We have two seats open and the only way we can take a stand is if both of us win in November
