MEET STEVEN - DEKALB DAD
As a DeKalb resident of 16 years, family is everything. Steven is a husband and a DeKalb Dad of three amazing children. He has a 9-year-old son who attends Ashford Park Elementary School and has a set of 5-year-old fraternal twins --- all who have a passion for baseball! He attended the Georgia Institute of Technology and has worked in the residential and commercial construction industry for nearly two decades.
STEVEN ON THE ISSUES - FOR THE KIDS
As a DeKalb Dad, Steven will be making decisions for his kids, as much as yours. That is what motivates Steven to work hard for our kids. “We need a school system that is by DeKalb and for DeKalb. A system that lets kids be kids, and teachers be teachers.”
Putting Our Children First
As a member of the school board Steven will focus on the most important part of our schools – the kids. Student Achievement should be the focus of any school system and DeKalb County Schools need to be held accountable. The decisions made by the school board are no longer being made with the students as the priority.
Parents are Strength of our Community
Being a parent does not stop when the child enters a school building. Parents and teachers are partners in the business of education. Our community and the school system thrive because of the level of support given by parents to our children, teachers, staff, school buildings, and school board. Listening to parents and helping them feel like partners will be my focus and the cornerstone for representing my district.
Individualize the Schools to Drive Innovation & Excellence
Schools should not be treated as one size fits all. Steven would also focus on the facilities and the buildings that our students go to everyday. Our high schools are overcrowded and this should be the #1 priority of the DeKalb School Board. The schools need to be updated and better maintained. Our kids deserve the best and Steven will work to make sure that our students have the facilities to allow them to succeed.
Greater Transparency and Accountability for All Stakeholders
The administration in the DeKalb School System needs to be held accountable. The parents and stakeholders deserve to know how CARES ACT Funds and Tax Payer money is being spent. The School District needs to be financially transparent to the public. Steven will work to make sure that all stakeholders know how their money is being invested.
