VISION & PRIORITIES

As a School Board Member, Monique O’Grady will work to ensure that APS stays focused on students and guide APS to prioritize instilling a love of learning in ALL students. When we love what we do, we try harder and we succeed more.  

 

Monique will work on fulfilling this vision by focusing on the ABCs: Academics, Boundaries and Broken Links, Capacity and Communication.

A

Academics  

 

  • Instruction must be a priority

  • Ensure that instruction doesn’t swing too far towards “teaching to the test”

  • We must bridge the digital divide

  • We must support our teachers with proper training

B

Boundaries and Broken Links  

  • Diversity is a strength and must be a priority in all boundary decisions

  • We must ensure equitable access to choice schools and programs for all students

  • We must address our patchwork system of themed schools that excite students but fail to deliver

C

Capacity and Communication  

 

  • We must do a better job addressing our capacity issues

  • Communication - we must restore trust between our school leaders and the community
