This is a collection of my work on the Alexandria City School Board. Each month for nearly three years, I wrote an article to the Alexandria Times describing the goals and work of the superintendent and school board. As the chair of the school board, it was often my responsibility to explain the board's position in the ACPS press releases. I always wrote my own quotes and often wrote or edited the content to make sure it was capturing the board's actions. For the budget season, it was important to explain the school board proposal to the community and the City Council in clear terms. I often wrote specific pieces for the paper or online media. Lastly, during my leadership, the school board decided to review all the policies and some of them needed to be authored. I have included the policies I wrote or had a hand in designing.
