I am very proud of the Choice Schools we offer in our district and I would support expanding those schools and programs using the model that’s already working for our district.
I do believe there are valid concerns with Charter Schools which should be heard and addressed. However, I think Spokane’s district has found a balance that works well to meet the needs of students in our community. The Choice Schools offer unique learning environments to meet our district’s diverse student populations. I would like to see that continue and look for ways to build on the district’s diverse learning opportunities.
