As a parent of three children attending public school in the West Clark District, one with special needs, I am passionate about public education. West Clark Community Schools must provide the best for our children, support our dedicated teachers and staff and create graduates ready for college or careers. Despite our budget constraints, we must push our schools even more to provide better choices to parents, reach for higher standards, and improve our sites.
As a board member, I will work with my colleagues to create a Master Plan that does just that, and to ensure all monies are spent wisely and appropriately. I will continually strive for excellence, ask the tough questions and demand thorough and transparent answers.
I have experienced the education industry from many different capacities. I have been a preschool instructor, a substitute teacher and a homeschool educator. Furthermore, my experience as a veteran spouse afforded me the experience as acting Parliamentarian for the Enlisted Spouse’s Organization of Tinker Air Force Base. Coupled with my time as a Den mother and treasurer for my boys’ Cub Scout group and a Troop Leader for my daughter’s Girl Scouts troop, I believe gives me a unique perspective on providing leadership, as well as redesigning our schools to be accountable, effective and efficient in the years and decades ahead. For a dedicated, passionate and fresh point of view I ask you to vote for me, Katie Morgan.
