All students deserve access to the best education.  Our community is richly diverse, and the children of this community have many strengths.  To best ensure the success of all students, further development of the district's specialized programs, such as STEAM, GATE, Visual and Performing Arts, Vietnamese and Spanish Dual immersion programs, and 21st Century skills such as coding and robotics are all essential to ensuring that our students are well-equipped and competitive for the global economy.  It would be a priority to continue to provide students with the best available curricula and ensure that the foundational skills such as reading, writing, and math are solidified.
