Joseph W Martinez, legacy under construction

It takes at least three votes to take action on any item. Most of the following was accomplished with unanimous support from the board.

Here are my core values that drive my vision for making the RUSD a leader in education.

If there is a better way to accomplish something, if there are better resources; I want them for our students.

We need to move towards the customer service model. In addition to the core classes, English and math, we must be prepared to offer a student: What they want to learn, when they are ready to learn it, 24-7-365, and where they are available to learn. That is why we are offering virtual (online computer) classes.

As a school board member, it is important for me to consider all my accomplishments. Here is a partial listing of my legacy.
