North Kitsap School Board District #3

North Kitsap schools are important to my family.  My wife Colleen and I have lived here 14 years and have two sons enrolled in the North Kitsap School District.


Our school district has to make tough budget choices to restore financial stability.  Declining enrollment reduces revenue, expenses require tight management, and state funding is politically unpredictable.  Our district is an organization under pressure in a declining market – it is critical to protect revenue as budget cuts are made, by preserving the quality education that keeps students in North Kitsap schools.


Our teachers are the backbone of the District. Student achievement is the product of effective, motivated teachers.  As a Board member, I support decisions that will enhance our educational environment and allow North Kitsap to attract and retain quality teachers and staff. 


This won’t be easy, but it is essential to provide an education worthy of a North Kitsap student – every student, every school.
