My name is Kathy Plomer and I am running for a seat on the Adams 12 School Board. I am passionate about education and believe educating children is one of the most important public responsibilities we have. My core beliefs are that: education should be a partnership between the schools, parents and the community; all students deserve a well-rounded, exceptional educational experience that prepares them for success in life; and we must surround our students with excellent teachers and staff.
I am the proud mom of three Adams 12 students and have been a very active volunteer at the school and district level since my oldest daughter started kindergarten twelve years ago. My volunteer experience has made me an ardent supporter of Adams 12 schools and gave me the desire to serve the students, staff and community of District 12 as a member of the Board.
This campaign is made possible with the support of my family!
The District School Improvement Team (DSIT) Transitions Committee is one I have been proud to lead for the last three years. It’s a group of parents, teachers and students working to publish materials to help students (and parents) make transitions in key years – Kindergarten, 6th grade and 9th grade. Our first major project was the Kindergarten Transition Guide. The guide contains the answers to many questions frequently asked by parents on topics ranging from school registration to Kindergarten readiness. Check it out by clicking here.
Last year we published materials on transitioning to middle school. We had input from counselors, teachers, SROs and all of the middle school principals. We put together a list of frequently asked questions, as well as, a guide with common fears and ways to help students make the transition. To see these materials click here.
This year we are working on materials to help with the transition into high school. We interviewed all of the high school principals and are pulling those materials together for publication. The strength of this process comes in the partnership between parents, teachers, administrators and the District to distribute practical information to help students make successful transitions.
