Jordan's Campaign Platform

Fully Funded Public Education: A Core Value 

I will work to achieve the following:

1. Open and Responsive School District Governance
Trustees are elected officials with a duty to act in the interest of democracy, fostering an open and responsive relationship with the public, and advocating for the needs of each student and the school district courageously and honestly.

2. Appropriate Class Sizes and Compositions
Appropriate class sizes and compositions reinforce the principle of inclusion in public education and allow the unique needs of students to be met. Funding is required to provide equitable supports for students and their teachers.

3. Enhanced Access to Specialist Teachers & Support Staff 
Eliminating or restricting student access to specialist teachers and the diverse programming they provide impoverishes the quality of education students receive.

4. Improved Child and Youth Mental Health Supports
Public education has a duty to help students dealing with bullying, abuse, anxiety, mental illness, substance abuse and other challenges.
