Other facts

I am an educator, and I care deeply about our community. I believe that elected officials should represent the needs/desires of the community. I hope to engage all members of this community for in order to make our school district the very best it can be.

IMO, Amanda should disclose that she is the parent of Bullis Charter School children and, if elected, should recuse herself from any BCS-related discussions (lawsuits, facilities, etc). Additionally, Amanda should disclose what parties are sponsoring her campaign (I suspect BCS community). FWIW, here's a statement from Amanda's web page - We once again face a facilities issue in the growth of a few of the district schools, and the question of where to permanently house the charter school. It is my intent to look further at alternative options – getting feedback from the community – such as re-evaluating the grade configuration of the schools, allowing schools to grow naturally within the physical confines of their facilities, no longer binding all schools to 600 students, or perhaps creating magnet programs within the district to entice students to underutilized campuses.

Amanda, from reading the transcript from the League of Women Voters forum last night, it seemed to indicate that your child goes to Santa Rita. GG seems to imply that they go to Bullis, which is correct? Where you misquoted?

I agree with GG. Ms. Burke-Aaronson should disclose the fact that her children attend Bullis Charter School. I would be very interested in hearing her reasons for this, while desiring a post on the board of the area public schools. As a Santa Rita parent, I can say that I have never seen her at our school.
