FRAMINGHAM – It has been an exciting first term on the Framingham School Committee!
So today, July 30, it is with pleasure that I announce I am seeking re-election for a second term from District 7.
I love the Framingham Public Schools and I want to continue the work we have started. Ensuring that every student receives an education that is both academically rigorous and supports each student’s social and emotional development and well-being is of upmost importance to me.
This term, I have served as liaison to the Framingham Special Education Parent Advisory Council, Dunning Elementary, and Walsh Middle School. I also served on the Policy Subcommittee, Finance Subcommittee, and the Facilities Subcommittee. I am proud of the work we have done.
This term we created policies that ensure that no child is denied a school meal or mbarrassed in front of their peers because of their family’s financial situation.
We instituted an athletics participation policy, regardless of gender identity, which was the first one of its kind in the state.
In finance, we were fortunate to hire an outstanding Executive Director of Finance & Operations, thus improving financial planning and management. We also created an FY20 budget book which was a transparent and searchable reference document.
In the facilities subcommittee, we prioritized our capital budget to include air conditioning at the High School.
As a committee, most of us have worked hard at building relationships. Relationships with our colleagues, Dr. Tremblay, Central Administration, Staff, Students, City Council, City Administration and Stakeholders. We must all work collaboratively for all to be successful.
I look forward to the next two years on the School Committee. We must continue the hard work next term. I will continue to dedicate my energy and efforts to student achievement, transportation issues, implementation of the Equity Audit results, and special educations issues.
I have enjoyed meeting and working with many of our community stakeholders and I would love to hear from you. Please call me at 508-808-2641 or email me at email@example.com if you would like to talk about any issue.
Thank you for your support on Tuesday, November 5.
