Part of the responsibility of the EUHSD is to prepare students to be both college and career ready upon graduation. While college is an excellent path for some students, not every high school graduate is college bound. Our district should improve the way we help those who are not college bound, to enter the workforce. I'm committed to developing and supporting programs in which students who are not college bound, will have an opportunity to develop real skills related to their chosen career field. Specifically, I want to create trade-skill programs that allow students to graduate with the knowledge to pass the California State Licensing Board's, General Building Exam. Programs such as that or auto shop, wood shop, and culinary arts combine both hands-on training, and in class study to provide a platform for a student to enter the work force "career ready".

Support "At Risk" Students
As a Resident Manager, I have worked full time at a facility that treats individuals suffering from drug and alcohol addiction and mental health problems. I have seen first hand the devastating consequences these issues can have on families and individuals. "At Risk" students, sometimes referred to as at-risk youth, are adolescents who are less likely to transition successfully into adulthood and achieve economic self-sufficiency. It is imperative that our district works to identify students suffering with addictive behavior, physical or emotional abuse, or those who may be struggling to find their identity. We must support these students, whether these issues are present in their home, or something they struggle with personally. Recognizing that each individual student will have unique challenges that will need attention, it is our duty to reach out and help bridge the gap that may be between them, and success. Not just succeeding through four years of high school, but success throughout their lives.
