Please answer yes or no and provide comments to the following question:

Do you support designating one or more of Cincinnati Public Schools’ high schools to offer as part of the school(s) curriculum a Public Safety Academy?


I support implementing Issue 15 and it is actually listed as a goal on my door to door literature. As only 45% of CPS graduates go to college upon graduation, I believe we need to expand vocational and technical education to all of the neighborhood high schools, not just at Woodward where the majority of vocational and technical education is currently focused.

Would you vote for funding to establish and maintain the Public Safety Academy in Cincinnati Public Schools?

Will you agree to permit at least one CAFA and at least one Sentinels representative to be enduring advisers of the Public Safety Academy?

Do you support the reconvening of the 2018 Work group for the creation of the Public Safety Academy?  Will you personally attend the essential information session that will be given by ODE and ODPS that will provide the details for the creation of the Public Safety Academy?


When elected, I would welcome the opportunity to represent CPS on the working group to establish the public safety academy. I would be a strong advocate with Governor DeWine and federal leaders to find funding sources through to advance the project to creation
