Why are you running for school board? "I want to be more of an advocate for students’ health along with the academic programs. The Maple School District uses a model called block scheduling. I’ve been telling them for years that it’s the wrong model for a rural school district, because they run in 80-minute classes. I’m concerned about the students’ health along with their academic programs because of the lack of daily exercise."
