When we were elected four years ago, years of neglect had taken their toll on our schools. We have come so far in a few short years! This is a critical time in our turnaround agenda and we need your help to keep it going! Here are just a few of our accomplishments:

  • Stopped a $5 million payout to a politically connected contractor

  • Established anti-nepotism and anti-cronyism policies

  • Providing a laptop for EVERY student, beginning with Proviso East in January of 2019

  • All board meetings are now live streamed and recorded for the entire public

  • Parent involvement has skyrocketed - at East, parent conferences tripled last year, and more than 2,200 families have signed the District’s new parent compact to support their children's education

  • Freshman academies have increased our freshman on track to graduate from 55% to 73%

  • PMSA is now ranked 8th in the state and has been named a blue ribbon school

  • Purchased  $1 million in new books to replace badly outdated materials

  • Achieving a 1:1 computer/student ratio to support cutting edge learning opportunities

  • Partnerships with local elementary schools to create a seamless education plan for our students

  • Proviso East is one of 10 pilot Marzano Academies, with comprehensive and personalized lesson plans for all students

  • Created a $77 million fund without raising taxes to cover the costs of physical updates to all three schools so that they can have the learning spaces they so badly need. 

  • Focus on career academies prepares our students for college or a career in the trades. 

There is too much at stake to go back to zero and undo all the progress we have made for our students. Join us and let's work together to ensure our schools are all they can be, for Proviso East, Proviso West and PMSA.
