Hello, I am Brian Anderson, and I would like to be your
Write In choice for the upcoming Gilbert District School Board Election on Tuesday.
I am not running to reform the district. I am running to support the strengths of what has been done before us and shepherd it into the next decade.
I’d like to share clear, open, communication of the school board’s decisions and upcoming district changes that impact our families.
I love Gilbert Schools, our teachers, administrators and families – I want to preserve our values and intimacy as we continue to grow over the next 10 years.
Integration of learning and technology. We need a holistic plan for using technology to aid in our children’s learning, and I would like help build it. Technology does not solve everything, nor does it destroy everything. Computers are everywhere, lets make sure we have a plan to help our families, teachers and students make the most of these tools.
I want to encourage our four district buildings to work with one another, the neighborhoods and the city. We have a rich opportunity for our students to learn through serving those around them, lets do it!
Find creative ways to fund fine arts, extra curricular activities and clubs. We have a great, engaged parent-base – I want to find ways to educate our kids beyond the traditional subjects, even if the state is unwilling to pay.
I’d love to start a handful of after school programs. Wouldn’t it be great to have some of the high tech parents and Iowa State students run a programming workshop?
For my full set of goals, values and story please continue reading at my mini write-in campaign site…
I’d appreciate your vote on Tuesday, September 8. Put in on your calendar and remember me: “Brian Anderson” (a pretty average person who enjoys our schools… no need to write anything more than my name though).
