William Beers for West Geauga School Board
Beer believes that improving the school system depends on academic, financial and community involvement.
“Academic insights can be gained by examining districts that have better performance index scores than ours and our own scores grade by grade for deficiencies,” he said. “We have begun more extensive study that needs to be extended. There may also be academic and financial benefits in reorganizing the buildings in the district. We have also begun improved community interaction through regular state of the schools meetings and publications, which need to be further expanded.”
Beers says he should be elected because during his past four years as board president he has led the team to implemented performance-based compensation for administrators, established the best financial stability in the county and delayed additional taxes, identified a focused academic goal of being in the top 5 percent of schools in the state within five years and completed a long-range plan that is currently being implemented.
“This has been accomplished due to my collaborative, inclusive leadership enabling divergent personalities to unite on common positive goals,” he said.
