JP Claussen is my pick for the upcoming ICCSD election.
We need someone with the experience to guide our district. Claussen’s education knowledge is unmatched in this race. A West High special education teacher for 10 years, he knows the district, the families and how to assure a great education for every student.
We need a strong, collaborative leader. Claussen takes the conversation beyond rhetoric about unity. He is deeply invested in schools and neighborhoods throughout our community. He understands how quality schools in every area of the district are critical to our collective success.
We need an advocate for educational justice. Claussen has demonstrated a deep understanding of the need for strength-based approaches that nurture the great diversity in our schools. We must focus on creating meaningful opportunities and removing systemic barriers. Claussen’s passion for continued learning and his determination to find comprehensive solutions set him apart.
Please join me in voting for JP Claussen on or before July 19.
