We believe that every child deserves an education, a great school and great teachers.
We believe it also takes strong families, a stable home life and good health.
We believe that high school dropouts are years in the making, and that early intervention is the key to success.
Our vision is that every child will enter school ready to learn, read proficiently by 4th grade, make a successful transition to middle school, and graduate from high school on time.
We believe in the power of parents, teachers, students, companies, elected officials, law enforcement and members of the community, working together for the common good.
I pledge to strive for perfect school attendance. I pledge to support the United Way’s Campaign for the Common Good and help cut the high school dropout rate in half by 2018.
