Solutions to the
complex situations
facing P.U.S.D.


  1. Course content shall be made available online to parents and taxpayers.

  2. Parents have the fundamental right in Arizona to direct the upbringing of their children by knowing what is taught in schools.

  3. Help parents become further advocates for their children's education through welcoming them into the classrooms along side the teachers. Supply training for them through PTSA and continuing education with the teacher training.

  4. Support policies that increase parental access to what schools are teaching students (i.e. ZOOM meetings, maybe an audio link, or cameras in the back of the classrooms they can tune in to anytime).

  5. Ensure divisive rhetoric, such as CRT is kept out of our schools. WEED it out of the good programs that were already in place or have been thoroughly vetted by professionals, not activists.

  1. Advocate for a school-based mental health professional such as a trained and certified therapist or psychologist to provide students with the support they need--teachers are NOT psychologists. They should make referrals, not act like a "Social Health Doctor".

  2. Require regular training to teachers and staff on mental health conditions, substance use conditions, and suicide awareness and prevention, including school and community-based services and resources.

  3. Encourage partnerships with state and local organizations that are available in Arizona, through Community Service organizations, etc.

  4. Advocate for health education that includes mental health~~(be careful- this is how it has snuck in).

  5. Enact healthy school climate policies, such as requiring annual school climate surveys or having a student elected committee to be liaison with the student body and the staff (middle and high school level).
