I’m Andy Guarino and I’m running for re-election to the EVSC school board District 2.  I have served on the school board for the past 9 years, serving as President in 2017 and 2021.

My philosophy is to do my very best to study all sides of every issue and make the best decisions possible for the academic success and advancement of our children”.  “I want our children to be safe, happy, and academically prepared with the career readiness skills to be successful in whatever path they may choose in their future endeavors”.

If re-elected I promise that I will continue to lobby our legislators for increased education funding, to be able to again give pay raises to our teachers and staff in the next biennium. I will also continue to lobby for the expansion of the 21st Century Scholars program.

I also promise that “I shall continue to be aggressive in making sure all our teachers have the training needed to keep our kids safe. He will continue to advocate for an increase in extracurricular personnel stipends”. The last increase was in 2014-15.

I will continue to be diligent in making sure our budget is spent appropriately and prudently”.

I promise to continue to advocate for more mental health services for our children”.

I shall continue to push to make sure that all teachers have their plan, lunch, and PLC time, during the school day.

In conclusion, I humbly ask for your vote in the upcoming election.
