All Means All: Enhancing Supports and Resources for Our LGBTQ+ Students
Schools must be safe and supportive for all students. My resolution stems directly from students in the East Valley, who identified policy changes to help our schools become more inclusive places for learning by improving all-gender restroom accessibility and training, partner to survey students and update district policies, and create anti-bullying pilot for all school stakeholders.

Achieving Excellence for All: Establishing a Framework for Continuous Improvement
This framework will allow the District to identify and provide more supports to schools that are struggling, so that they can continue to improve. It will also let parents and community members understand how their school is doing.
We know that all kids, regardless of background, can learn at high levels. In order to support schools and make continued progress, we need better information on how our schools are doing. The performance framework will allow us to look at all of our different types of schools through the same lens of success. Read the full resolution here.
