Candidate Statement: Winograd on Non-Monetary Priorities for Livingston School System

LIVINGSTON, NJ - Ron and I, along with the other Board members, will continue to assist our new Superintendent by providing our perspectives and priorities for improving LPS. Three of my priorities are 1) enhancing educational opportunities for all students and professional development for our staff, 2) encouraging open lines of communication with parents, staff and students, and 3) upgrading district-wide technology.

As mentioned in earlier letters, I am eager to continue discussions about LHS CP1 and Honors offerings, K-8 math and language arts curricula and the development and evaluation of special education programs.  We must also continue to provide productive professional development for teachers and train our administrators and staff in new observation and evaluation processes substantially changed as a result of major legislative reforms recently enacted.

Community members are always encouraged to contact the Board with questions and concerns but I am especially looking forward to the launch of a new strategic planning process involving the input of parents, teachers, administrators and students and to gaining insight into LPS through upcoming meetings between the Board and our teachers’ representatives.

Technology will be a focus of the Strategic Plan, and the LPS Three-Year Technology Plan is due to be updated and overhauled.  Immediate technology needs must be addressed to meet the demands of an explosion in the use of wireless devices by our students and staff to enhance instruction and soon we will need to meet the demands of PARCC, assessments aligned with the Common Core State Standards which will be given to students nationwide.

The role of the Board of Education as a policy setting body is simple.  But the role its members play in creating and evaluating policies and priorities is complex and requires a genuine interest in and concern for education.  It is not just a numbers game.
