Superior Education for Upper Perk Kids

We are focused on electing responsible leaders committed to making evidence-based, informed decisions. We support leaders who will work to help all Upper Perk students achieve growth and success, leaders who will help each child reach their full potential.

We support candidates who
  • Are professional and respectful of our students, staff, administrators and other board members.
  • Recognize their duty to the taxpayers, parents and children of Upper Perk to put aside partisanship and focus on the common good.
  • Are committed to supporting public education.

We firmly reject
  • Censorship and Book Banning
  • Bullying and scapegoating of any person based on race, gender, ethnicity or religion.
  • Whitewashing or suppression of facts regarding difficult or painful events in our nation's history.
  • The recent baseless smearing of teachers, administrators and students based on their identities or beliefs.

  • Focus on student success. Make sure that all students have the opportunity to succeed in school, regardless of their background or abilities. This means providing high-quality education, investing in early childhood education, and supporting students with special needs.
  • Promote equity and inclusion. Make sure that all students feel welcome and supported in school, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or religion. This means creating a safe and inclusive environment, teaching students about diversity, and providing support for students who are experiencing bullying or discrimination.
  • Invest in teachers and staff. Make sure that teachers and staff have the resources they need to be successful. This means providing them with competitive salaries, professional development opportunities, and support for their mental and physical health.
  • Be a good steward of public funds. Make sure that public money is used wisely and efficiently. This means being transparent about how money is spent, making sure that contracts are awarded fairly, and holding schools accountable for their spending.
  • Be a voice for the community. Make sure that the school board represents the interests of the community. This means listening to parents, students, and teachers, and making decisions that are in the best interests of all students.
  • The school board should be non-partisan and apolitical. Make sure that what is best for the kids and the Upper Perk community is the sole focus.
