Why serve on the school board? I believe that my background of being in education for 34 years as a teacher, administrator and coach in the Hilton School District will give me a positive insight on the school board when making decisions. By being retired I have the time necessary to for this position on the school board.

What are the top issues facing our schools?

  • What can the district do to catch students up from the missed classroom time for the past 2 years?
  • We need to listen to parent's who have become more engaged in the educational process.
  • The need to recruit, retain and fill all positions in the district considering the competitive atmosphere in Monroe County.
  • Continue our investment in keeping our technology up to date for our students and teachers.
  • How long can we continue to use reserve funds to balance the school budget?
  • With federal stimulus money we have added teaching positions. Will we be able to fund them when the money goes away?

What do you want people to know about you? I am a veteran who served in the Army and have lived in the Spencerport District for 42 years. I am a financial conservative and want to continue having Spencerport family values from the Spencerport Community to be provided in the Spencerport School District. If you feel uneasy about voting in person, please request an absentee ballot from Marcy Clapper at 349-5101.
