Branchburg Board Of Education
Why am I running for the Board of Education...
I have been asked why I am running for the Board of Education and the answer is very simple – why not! I have such a strong desire to serve the community as a Board of Education member and the time is now right for me to serve.
There are many reasons for me to want to become a member of the Board of Education including:
- to ensure that the curriculum teaches to the full education of the students
- to be part of the decision making process to ensure decisions are made with the best interests of all Branchburg students in mind
- to ensure that programs are geared to preparing students for success during their entire academic career
- to increase involvement of residents in educational committees/activities
- to develop a program where residents can be more involved in the decisions that are made by the Somerville Board of Education that impact the High School students from Branchburg
I like many other residents want our students to receive a top quality and well-rounded education while being mindful of the cost of education and the impact to taxpayers.
