Education

Supporting Stamford schools has been and will continue to be one of my top priorities and, as mayor, I will continue working tirelessly to ensure that all of our students have access to a quality education. As a State Representative, I’ve worked with my fellow Stamford delegation members to secure funding for a wide range of education initiatives, including $65 million in funding for the new Strawberry Hill School and increases in ECS funding. As mayor, I will work closely with Superintendent Lucero, the Board of Education, School Administrators, parents, teachers, and students to enact policies that help all of our students receive the best education possible. This includes the following priorities: 

  • Helping our schools recover from the devastating effects of COVID-19 and supporting students and teachers with additional resources to make up for the time that was lost in the classroom.

  • Ridding our schools of mold that is not only a serious health hazard but simply does not do our students justice; they are our future and they deserve better. 

  • Expanding affordable child care options that guarantee universal early childhood education for all Stamford students. 

  • Working with state and federal partners to secure substantial funding to support Stamford public schools’ infrastructure. 

  • Providing additional mental health resources for our students, and expanding social and emotional learning curriculum across all of our schools.

  • Expanding after school and summer learning opportunities for all students.
