MC: Add full time Officers/Marshal/Guardians to our elementary campuses, continuously improve remote learning to be able to add a virtual high school option after COVID-19 for students who learn best or have well suited circumstances for remote learning, expand Career & Technical Education offerings for students with the addition of the second high school, expand the use of VR in classrooms to help students more fully experience, engage in and retain learning, create an Adopt-A-Bus Program to raise funds to enhance student learning opportunities. I want to build on the momentum & synergy we have created together over the last 3 years to help our students become even stronger, safer and smarter.
