Position paper: Kathleen Harragan

Seat: School Committee – 3 year term

(vote for 2 candidates)

Why I am running for office:

To continue to provide an excellent educational experience for all of southborough’s children while being mindful and respectful of the town’s fiscal constraints.

Why I am the right candidate for the position:

This will be my third term serving the schools of southborough. The first three years I spent learning and gaining knowledge of the complexities of mass general law and state mandates. The last three years I spent (2 as chair) serving on the many subcommittee that crafted our 10 year strategic plan, selected a new superintendent, and tackled controversial topics like closing a school or asking for a parental partnership for the 1:1 iPad project. We have laid the groundwork for many exciting new initiatives for the schools and I would appreciate the opportunity to spend the next 3 years implementing the plans for these many new initiatives.

My priorities/Key issues:

Establishing a collaborative relationship with a new school administration and town administrator; implementing the key initiatives in our updated strategic plan in the areas of communication, technology, special education and curriculum; and carefully monitoring our enrollment projections and building requirements.
