Safer Schools & Quality Education

As a father to two boys in Loudoun County schools, I am committed to investing in safe schools, effective class sizes, and excellent teachers in order to ensure that all Loudoun students have access to a quality education. No parent should have to worry about the security of their children when they walk through our school doors.  During my time on the board, we have built numerous new schools and other facilities, and increased dollars spent per student and teacher pay, all while reducing taxes for residents.  


RECORD OF RESULTS:

  • Increased operating funding to schools by $180 during my term ($694M FY17, $874M FY20)

  • Ensured countywide full-day-kindergarten for every Loudoun Kindergartener (65% expansion).

  • Funded 100% of School Boards Capital Improvement Program requests for new schools and facilities.

  • Funded 100% of all requested school security enhancements.

  • Called for SRO’s in elementary schools in 2018, and support funding for it now.

  • Helped stop the closure of western Loudoun’s small schools each year.

  • Supported and helped open Academies of Loudoun STEM Education Center in 2018.

  • Advanced new Brambleton Library and secured funding for Purcellville Library improvements
