This platform is a reflection of our priorities as School Board Directors, an accounting of the progress we’ve made over the past four years, and a look forward at the progress we plan to continue bringing to the North Penn School District.
We are honored to serve the North Penn community. We hope to have earned your trust and your vote in order to continue building on this work ‒ in partnership with administrators, parents, teachers, students, support staff, and community members.
Protecting our students’ health & safety is our highest priority. We know that the past year and a half has been extremely challenging for our entire community ‒ most of all, our children. We will continue to prioritize science and the guidance provided by the CDC and the Montgomery County Board of Health in all decisions regarding our students’ health and safety moving forward.
We all want the very best for our children. Our team is committed not only to maintaining North Penn’s elite standings, but to expanding our legacy of excellence in education. We will continue to work to ensure all our students receive a high-quality education and have access to the resources and support necessary to allow them reach their full potential.
We are dedicated to an evidenced-based approach to keeping our students safe and our buildings secure. A strong safe schools program is rooted in a positive and connected school climate, caring staff, engaged parents, and empowered students. We are committed to building upon these principles by investing in the best safety systems, technologies, and personnel.
We believe in a holistic approach to supporting our students ‒ not only focusing on academic success and physical health, but by prioritizing their social and emotional well-being in equal measure. We will continue to work to expand the network of support so that our children are not only safe, but are able to be heard, to grow, and to thrive.
We recognize that there are problems inherent in society that are inevitably and undeniably reflected in our schools. We are dedicated to ensuring that diversity, equity & inclusion aren’t simply administrative buzzwords, but are values woven into our school communities and curriculum. We will continue this work with an eye to a future where all our students feel represented, respected, and loved.
Investing in the district's many overdue infrastructure issues is essential to ensuring our schools remain safe & effective learning environments and that our facilities are accessible to all. These are investments in the future of North Penn and must be made strategically in order to maintain fiscal responsibility while meeting the long-term needs of all our schools.
Prioritizing fiscal responsibility when it comes to managing an annual budget of this size is vital to ensuring the long-term economic health of our community. Equally important is the ability of our community members to see and understand how decisions regarding their tax dollars are made. We are proud to have maintained the 5th lowest property tax rate out of 22 districts in Montgomery County.
Climate change is real and the only way to maintain clean air, safe water, and a healthy food supply for future generations is to make as many small changes as we can now in order to preserve our planet. We are proud to be taking these steps to ensure NPSD is doing its part to cut waste, save electricity, and protect our environment.
