BOE President Daisy Gonzalez Passes Away

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Board of Education President Daisy Gonzalez.  Daisy was a tireless advocate for students, parents and guardians. Daisy was always focused on putting Kid's First and supporting positive decisions and programs to allow every student to reach his or her potential.  A volunteer for many years in her children's schools she became the de-facto parent representative on the BOE and rose to the position or President of the Board.  Her calm leadership style served to quell tensions and lead to constructive dialogue and decisions always focused on students.  Our thoughts and prayers are with her family during this difficult time.  May she rest in peace.
