Why did you choose to live in CCISD?

Considering your skills and talents, what positive contribution would you make as a member of the Board of Trustees?
I possess many years of experience in financial assessment beginning as a Certified Public Accountant including formal training with a B.S. in Accounting and an M.A. in Public Administration. I have developed a strong passion for policy planning and execution as well as fiscal restraint in the stewardship of tax payers funds. I have a strong desire to ensure every student is treated fairly and that policies, rules and procedures are there for each student. In a growing district such as CCISD there must be a strategic placement of limited resources in order to maximize funds that directly benefit all students. I would strive to represent all taxpayers and students.

What roles do trustees play in affecting student success?
The school board should be advocates for all students in their district. By developing policies and practices to support learning, allocating resources and assuring accountability, the board can provide a coordinated and sustained process of continuous improvement. A five-year plan looking past graduation from high school should be the goal for every student, to create a successful path. I want to help students appreciate the next steps past high school through a thoughtful process of plan development during their four years of high school. The district should work to reach those students who have a talent toward a technical or vocational education path. Offering CTE courses is just the beginning; there must be a deliberate connection between high school preparation and post-graduation achievement. Getting the diploma can often be an end for students, not a beginning. The goal for CCISD should be to have every student leave high school on a path toward success in life.

What critical challenges face the district, and what are possible solutions to address those issues?
CCISD faces challenges in keeping up with enrollment growth, maintaining aging facilities, and ensuring post-graduation success. To meet these challenges, school construction and renovation needs to focus not just on the needs of the next few years, but longer term to ensure that construction is not needlessly stopped and restarted. CCISD also has many aging buildings. Preventive maintenance is key to keeping these buildings in excellent condition and ensuring that all students receive a great education and experience, regardless of facility age. CCISD also needs to focus on ensuring a clear path to post-graduation success. Many excellent CTE programs already exist in the district that assist with this. These programs need to be continued and expanded and should emphasize the path required following graduation to enter and succeed in these field. Additionally, 5-year post graduations plans should be a goal for all students to ensure that they have an idea and preparation for the future and know how to get into and succeed in their chosen field. Further information regarding my positions on these and other issues can be found on my campaign Facebook page, Michelle Moore for CCISD School Board District 5.
