Position Papers
Support for Measure E and Community Input
I support Measure E as long as we maintain full community input, technical excellence and a maximum of fiscal responsibility. Letter printed in Piedmont Post Feb. 15, 2005.
Seismic Retrofitting: The BIG decisions are made early
The most signficant decisions regarding the seismic retrofitting of our schools will be made at the beginning of the process. These decisions must be carefully reviewed.
Maintaining the Quality of Education in Piedmont Schools
We need to have community input into the review of the curriculum at our schools so that we can give our students the best possible education.
