Two trends are converging upon City Schools of Decatur right now: Increasing student enrollment and decreasing state and federal support for public schools.
So it has never been more important for our school system to navigate the financial complexities of public education. To do that, Decatur’s school board must provide the oversight needed to ensure that our quality of education continues to improve – while our stewardship of taxpayer dollars remains strong.
As a candidate for Decatur School Board, I bring a history of expertise and leadership in financial management and a passion for giving our community’s kids an education that prepares them to continue their learning. I’m asking for your support to continue the Decatur success story.
