News from Georgetown & Williamson County

Confederate statue committee revisited

BY ALI LINAN

WILLIAMSON COUNTY The for- mation of the committee to evaluate the history of the Confederate statue in front of the Williamson County Courthouse in Georgetown faced another delay during the March 23 Commissioners Court meeting. Commissioner Russ Boles, who is spearheading the committee, used the agenda item to provide an update. The formation of the committee was rst pitched by Boles in August after renewed cries for the statue to be relocated o the Georgetown Square, but it has since been delayed due to other pressing matters such as COVID-19 case spikes and vaccination plans, the 2020 election and the winter storm, he said. Now that much of that is under control, Boles said he would like the committee to be formed in the next 30-45 days, which would be late April to early May.

Jason Tetlak was chosen to design and paint the new Georgetown Animal Shelter mural.

CANDIDATE Q&A

Get to know the candidates running in the local election

Incumbent

Georgetown ISD, Place 6

With about 3/4 of students back in the classroom, my COVID concerns are now uncertain state funding, covid-related expenses, learning loss from remote in- struction and disengaged remote learners. Being conservative with spending, creative in nding budget cuts, and prepared for tough decisions ahead. We also can’t lose sight of student and sta mental health and support programs. It is my hope, as it is the hope of most GISD teachers, students and parents, that in-person learning will occur this fall for the majority of students. The recovery eort must include utilization of the end of year MAPS and STAAR results to celebrate each student’s successes and also to pinpoint gaps in each student’s learning for laser-fo- cused instruction. Additional supports may be needed in the social/emotional area. How will you help GISD recover from the eects of COVID-19 and the Texas winter storm? I think that the current administration is doing all that they can to overcome the COVID19 and recent blizzard conditions. We clearly have lost an entire year of eective education, but resolution of that problemwill have to be solved by profes- sional educators. How will you help GISD recover from the eects of COVID-19 and the Texas winter storm?

Continued focus on transparency in student performance. The board has recently adopted measurable, data driven targets for student learning, which are used to inform the superintendent’s evaluation. This is a good start, but I will continue to bring increased accountability to district leadership. There are clear challenges GISD faces, and I will drive the district forward towards improving these critical areas. While GISD has excellent career/technol- ogy programs and has made strides in the social/emotional area for students, the state/local accountability measures clearly show the decline in GISD students mastering the state curriculum as required for all Texas school districts. GISD teachers need a robust, aligned curriculum to use as the guiding document along with adequate resources to teach the curriculum. What GISD board of trustees project or policy initiative needs to take priority and why? My priority project will be to work on the curriculum. The ratings of the failing schools will not improve until test scores improve, and test scores will not improve until we have a curriculum that teaches what is tested. This is a priority because we don’t have long to avoid state intervention unless this situation improves. What GISD board of trustees project or policy initiative needs to take priority and why? With the exponential growth in GISD and post-pandemic, the trustees must decide what the new district budget will look like. Many variables in the world have changed, and the money that was previously spent that did not directly contribute to the qual- ity of education for all students must be scrutinized. I believe a bottom-up budget is required to make sure every dollar available is adding to the equity of our schools.

Why are you the best candidate for the position?

TIM CARR

Occupation: Senior technology leader Relevant experience: GISD Education Foun-

Having two currently enrolled students, I have a real-time understanding of where the district is thriving and where improvement is needed. I see rsthand the eorts teachers and sta are making to improve literacy, nu- meracy, and STAAR scores, without sacricing ne arts, P.E., or mental health. I understand the role of a trustee, and will help guide GISD in closing the gaps to ensure every student graduates college, career or military ready. I am the best candidate because of the teach- ing and leadership positions I have held in the education [eld]. My ability to understand the issues and ask pertinent questions regarding the instructional program, budget prepara- tion and the importance of teacher com- pensation is imperative at this time. I have a “teacher’s heart” and my vast experience as a principal demonstrates my commitment to all students to ensure that their needs are met.

I am the best candidate because I represent change and not the status quo. The present educational plan for our students is clearly not working. When your current methods are not working, then those methods need to change.

Occupation: Business planning lead Relevant experience: 14 years in corporate JEFF SIEGISMUND

GISD is in need of a new voice with new ideas, and that is what I oer. My accounting degree and nancial knowledge combined with busi- ness planning for locations and headcount is equivalent to how the schools and students should be managed. Coming out of a pan- demic, GISD must focus on spending areas that can be run more eciently so property taxes remain unchanged, and allocate funds that improve the quality of education.

Both the pandemic and Texas winter storms caused interruptions and com- plications for education. To ensure any interruption is met head-on, there needs to be a continuity plan in place to provide education wherever possible. Technology and infrastructure are two areas we must focus resources on so that a streamlined continuation of education can be provided in the most turbulent of times.

Occupation: Senior consultant BEN STEWART

Eight years of continuous, direct involvement in GISD schools and fathering two students gives me an insider’s view to how the policies we implement eect the system. Having kids in the district helps me better understand the needs of the 21st-century learner and ensure the district’s vision, mission and beliefs align with these needs.

National news highlights how far ahead GISD is in our response to COVID and other major catastrophes as we have had in person learning since day one of this school year. I will continue to listen to teachers, parents, and community members as we re-focus on the learning methods that work best for each student.

Continued focus on social and emotional wellness programs will ensure that kids are ready and capable of learning which will help improve test scores across the board. Continued support and investments in pro- grams that engage kids and prepare them for college, career or the military and will ensure that we continue producing future ready young adults.
