Paul’s Priorities

School Safety

The safety and security of our students and staff continues to be a critical concern. Paul advocates to constantly update, develop, and expand all the necessary state-of-the-art tools available to maintain the safety at our sites.

Student Achievement

Academic achievement is at the very core of why our schools exist. Success involves and requires that educators, parents, staff, and community work as a united group to benefit students. Paul is committed to finding solutions to our achievement challenges.

High Quality Staff

Highly trained and effective teachers are vital to student success. We must be competitive in recruiting and retaining an exemplary staff and assure that the most needy students are assigned to the most skilled and effective teachers to reach the highest potential of both.

After speaking to teachers, parents and the candidate himself on the issues facing schools in District 2, I’m happy to support Mr. Paul Fetsko! I beg of the parents I know in District 2 to do your homework before you vote! Do what I did – talk to teachers and research these candidates. Don’t play politics with education!
