A UNIFIED VISION
We live in potentially polarizing times, yet when you talk 1-on-1 with residents in Leander ISD, you will find that we all define "success" for our district with similar themes. As your school board representative, Jeff Johnson will focus on the priorities that support our common goals:
A high quality education for every child that gives them the best chance for a fulfilling career.
Whether you are a parent or an employer, you have a vested interest in the education available to the next generation. Matching skills and passion to jobs is a key part of this process. Making that journey available to every student in our district, regardless of their socio-economic background, is an important part of the mission of LISD. I will work to make sure a quality education for all students stays at the center of the district's goals.Close
Great teachers who are highly supported, properly trained and free to educate kids in the most creative ways possible.
At LISD we have a history of finding and keeping the best teachers in our community. We must continue to support our teachers through competitive compensation, world-class training, and systems that free them to do what they love ... teach. As the son of a teacher, I have seen firsthand the struggle between paperwork, policies, and preparing lessons. It’s easy for the central goal of educating students to get pushed to the side by busywork and district compliance. I will support policies that fight against these distractions.Close
Financial policies that provide a balance between understanding our long-term growth and fulfilling our short-term responsibilities.
Finances drive almost every other decision at the school board level, and without careful oversight and planning, a district can quite easily find itself enslaved to financial constraints that keep it from focusing on kids and teachers. Leander ISD will keep growing for the next decade and beyond, and we want to make sure that the decisions we make now do not hinder our ability to educate our community in the future. I want fiscal policies that help set us up for long-term success, so that we don’t find ourselves having to take away from educational initiatives and teachers in the future because of the decisions we make today.Close
