A Message from Dr. Evans

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.

Please get involved, contribute what you can and, most importantly, vote on June 7th and November 8th. Together we can make San Diego Unified a world class school system.
