I have been proud to serve as a member of the LBUSD School Soard for the past four years. As a School Board member, attorney and father of two children, I have been involved in the Laguna Beach Schools for many years. I serve as the School Board representative to the School Power Endowment Board. I attend PTA meetings to share current district issues with stakeholders. In the past, I have worked as a Professor of Law at Pacific University, and at Long Beach City College.
During my tenure as a School Board member. all four schools have been designated as California Distinguished Schools and Laguna Beach High School earned the honor as a National Blue Ribbon SchooL I supported access to AP and Honors classes for all students. Skeptic's felt test scores would go down, and the opposite happened! Additionally, the High School was just honored by U.S. News and World Report as one of the best in the nation.
LBUSD has the highest rating financially, while other districts are in financial trouble. It is important to note all of our schools were recently honored by the California Business Association as some of the best schools in the State.
