  1. Build positive working relationships and obtain feedback from education policymakers, KDE staff, practitioners and education policy/advocacy groups.
  2. Lead a statewide initiative to achieve consensus on the future of education.
  3. Work with legislators and the Governor's Office to secure passage of legislation aligned with the KBE/KDE legislative agenda.
  4. Expand KDE's supports and dissemination of resources aligned with the KBE's resolution on anti-racism and equity.
  5. Provide transparent reporting of PreK-20 indicators and long-range goals related to student outcomes, the educator workforce (including the diversity of the teacher workforce) and student
