Fighting for Our Funding

As one of Kentucky’s poorest school districts, Barbourville Independent can only afford just 40% of the funding that kids in the richest school district get. But according to the Kentucky Education Reform Act, the state government should be giving Barbourville at least $1000 more per student.

If Elected to School Board, I Will:

  • Fight for the extra funding state law says we’re entitled to

  • Get teachers the extra resources they need

  • Use the additional funding to encourage smaller class sizes and hire needed staff

  • Make long overdue repairs and renovations (such as expanding the cafeteria)
