Reforming Education

Ensuring all Scottsdale students have access to a quality education is one of my goals.

In certain parts of Scottsdale, our students are performing admirably on state tests, Advanced Placement exams, and are applying to colleges at an impressive rate. In other parts of our city, however, our students are underperforming.

The Coronado Success Initiative is a great example of an educational reform that is transforming the culture at Coronado High School and raising the bar for our students. This initiative has been a huge success and CHS students are thriving both academically and personally.

I fully support the expansion of partnership programs like the Coronado Success Initiative to other Scottsdale public schools to improve student success.

I understand that there is no single path to academic success, but we need to give our students more flexibility in designing an educational path that aligns with their academic and career aspirations.

As your Councilman, I will push for more partnerships and continue efforts to seek out new and innovative ways to ensure our students are college and career ready.
