As you may have seen in prior articles or literature Vote 1-3-5 for District 15 (Manjula Sriram, Scott Herr, and Gerard Iannuzzelli) have put together a platform that outlines three major issues that need attention in District 15. Stop deficit spending, Strengthen the curriculum, and Practice “open” and “transparent” communication. My article today is focusing on being open and transparent when conducting board business.

To be “open” and “transparent” are policies that should be instilled in all organizations. Although the words are often interchanged in conversation their meanings are not the same. However in order for them to be effective these terms must be practiced together. Before I explain the benefits as it pertains to District 15 let me first outline what I believe are the true meaning of these words.

In a nutshell, fiscal responsibility is living within our means, using financial resources wisely and making financial decisions in an open and transparent way. But let’s get more specific.

First, what IS NOT Fiscal Responsibility?

The Situation

District 15 is one of the top school districts in the state of Illinois. The residents of our district should be proud of this great achievement and be thankful to our faculty, students, parents, and the administration for doing the hard work needed for that achievement. But even a great school district, with tremendous community support, needs to think ahead.

Abraham Lincoln once said, “I don’t think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.”  If we want to continue to be one of the top districts, we need to learn how to challenge our children to think critically and build their problem solving skills. This will require a curriculum that goes beyond the Illinois Learning Standards, and sets a higher goal of achievement for our students.

Non-Incumbents State Common Platform

Palatine, IL – Community Consolidated School District 15 Board of Education candidates Manjula Sriram, Scott Herr, and Gerard Iannuzzelli are pleased to announce the formation of “Vote 1-3-5 for District 15” (www.vote135.org). The three non-incumbents decided independently to run in the upcoming election and met soon afterward. They held several meetings to discuss their individual beliefs and goals for the school district and discovered there was a great deal of commonality in their positions. This led to the decision to cooperate and support each other’s candidacy and to form “Vote 1-3-5”. The numbers 1-3-5 refer to each candidate’s position on the ballot.
