Warren on the Issues

Why have you decided to run for the Saint Joseph School Board?

I want to see if I can help and or change a few things.

What are the strengths you will bring to the school board?

Not a “Yes Man”, voice my opinion which some may not like but sometimes, the truth hurts!

Where do you stand on the 4-day/week school schedule proposal?

It has it’s pros and cons but all in all, I am not in favor of it in St Joseph, It’s great for the staff but I feel bad for the students.

What is your position on general levy Tax increases to increase the school district's annual budget?

we need to, costs go up, we need to work on investing for the students down the road.

What is your position on the current redistricting proposal?

As long as it is done equally without bias, no gerrymandering!

What is your approach to school safety? What is your position on metal detectors, security guards, and safety training for our teachers and administrators?

I have personally witnessed enhanced security measures at our school including staff buildings and feel it meets current practices, as long as it is utilized by all, not at all crazy about metal detectors but if it comes down to it. I am all in favor of recruiting former Military members to teach, they will be teachers first but they also know how to respond to a situation, I also favor enhanced training for staff and teachers but something longer than a few hours or online, have them go thru a few days of a tactical course.

How do you feel about the current approach to special education within the school district?

We need to admit that the atmosphere of schools may not be the proper place for all students. I think the SJSD has a place for the Special Education students, It’s just not in the general population. I have seen first hand “Special Needs” student situations.

What do you see as the most significant challenges teachers face within the district?

Respect for the teachers, knowing they will have there back covered if it ever comes to it “We have your six” Class Sizes, Time to prepare for a class, money for teaching aids, teachers should be able to be repaid for acceptable teaching aids, even pencils

What will be your approach to working with the school district administration?

Open mind, go in learning because I really want to learn but, call it a skunk when it smells like one

Would you encourage the introduction of materials into the school system based on Critical Race Theory (CRT) and other "woke" ideologies?

Not really, I feel it takes the conversation of race away from what it’s really all about, “Woke” ideologies are just someone’s opinion on what’s woke so, no.
