Parent activist at Washington Elementary summer 2012 where I developed a spatial density analysis, coordinated a petition (36 signatures), and sought union pressure to reverse site decision on putting largest class sizes in the smallest classrooms (see question 1 for more on this).

Discussing with BUSD staff the idea of saving the Gardening teacher program by replacing all elementary school after school programs with cooking and gardening teachers. This way the programs can be saved in a cost neutral way.

Recently I have been involved with the relocation of BHS Portables to Washington Campus, BAM and other locations. This has put me in communications with board members, and Superintendants about prop 65 issues related to this relocation program and associated costs.
