A Message from Dr. Evans

THANK YOU to all of our supporters for our victory in November 2016 with over two thirds of the vote! This is a clear mandate to carry out the goals of Vision 2020.

I came onto the Board because I was dissatisfied with the state of public education in San Diego. In spite of being hit with the worst budget crisis in a generation, we have come a long way in the past eight years by keeping our priorities straight:

During these tough times we have worked together with our teachers and our test scores have steadily been going up. We are also excelling in music and the arts. We are a national leader in classroom technology. I am asking for your support to continue this work.

To continue with Vision 2020 for a world class school system it is imperative that we also elect Dr. Sharon Whitehurst-Payne in District E.  As an educator with 40 years of experience, she has been a great contributor to the Board in her first year as a Trustee.
