for School Committee
My name is Emily Smith-Lee, and I am asking for your support for re-election to the Sharon School Committee. I am committed to promoting open and transparent decision-making on the School Committee, ensuring that people who want to be heard on important decisions have a voice, making informed and fair decisions relating to the school budget, and keeping front and center in our priorities the ability of each child to reach his or her learning potential.
I am running for re-election because I believe all of these principles are even more important than ever as we face critical challenges ahead, including finding the funds to continue moving the district forward while respecting the already substantial burden on Sharon taxpayers, addressing the physical needs of Sharon High School, working with the Sharon Teachers' Association to arrive at a contract that is fair to our teachers but also financially sustainable, providing programs that meet the needs of all students, and staying true to our mission and vision in the face of state and federally mandated testing.
I hope you will visit the About Me page to learn more, and please remember to vote on May 17, 2016 at the Sharon High School!
