I stand for three fundamental goals:
- Provide a learning environment where all students feel included, supported, cared for, and important.
- Ensure that the programs and their delivery reflect the mission and values of the school district.
- Support the administration, faculty, and staff to deliver--individually and collectively--a sound and enriching educational and life experience to all students.
If given the opportunity to serve on the School Board, I will ensure that the Board supports the implementation of policies and practices that provide an equitable education for all students. As a Board member, I will collaborate with all Board members as we represent and take into consideration the voices of students, families, staff, faculty, and the administration.
Our current and future students and families need us to implement the programming that best reflects the fundamental objectives of all educational institutions: to provide a safe learning environment where kids can develop a strong sense of who they are--and who they will become--as curious learners, scholars, and independent thinkers. Children need an environment that gives them a sense of community, that models good character, and that enables them to grow into responsible citizens who lead moral and ethical lives.
I ask that you cast your vote for me, José Juan Ibarra, for the Santa Ynez Valley Union High School District School Board on November 3, 2020. I will stand by all students and you.
