Angela M. Lisy for Euclid School Board
If re-elected, Lisy would like to focus on expanding academic services and opportunities for students who are college-bound.
“We were able to offer students in grades 11 and 12, (the) opportunity to take Dual Enrollment classes in four subject areas,” she said. “Additionally, we are working diligently with our counselors and teachers to expand our Advance Placement courses and Post Secondary Enrollment options for our highest achieving students.”
She also would like to work toward offering internship and apprenticeship opportunities for students, as well as creating partnerships with the community through shared facilities and services.
“It is essential that our district create opportunities for our students to participate in real-world learning environments where they can develop the problem-solving, interactive skills necessary for future employment,” she said.
Lisy said she has worked to preserve middle school sports and after-school extracurricular activities, helped to cut costs and contributed to increased student and staff credibility.
The 22-year resident is vice chairman of the Euclid Recreation Commission and president of the Euclid Panther Swim Team Parent Board, as well as a member of PTAs and boosters at the schools.
