School and student safety is absolutely one of my top priorities. Students need a safe and welcoming environment to learn and grow. I commend and support the actions of the 2023 School Board to increase the presence of Sheriff Deputies in the schools and add School Safety Officers. However, I think there is room for improvement when it comes to the district's reporting of safety issues to parents in an open and transparent manner.  The Michigan Revised School Code requires that all Michigan Districts provide building safety reports to parents annually and on-demand whenever a parents requests it.  Unfortunately, Hartland's safety reports fall short of the requirements of the Michigan Revised School Code and even the district's own policies.   When elected, I will ensure that Hartland transparently reports all safety data to parents to protect the continued safety of our students, teachers, and staff.
