Larry Anderson

Lee's Summit R7 School Board Candidate

I filed to serve on the Lee's Summit R7 School Board because of the wonderful experiences my family has had with the schools and teachers of the district. Education is the red carpet to unlimited possibilities for our children and this district is focused on programs that provide prepared students for careers in skilled trades and technology. Elect me to the LSR7 School Board to keep the district focused on rigorous education, safe and secure facilities, and to ultimately improve our schools.

Action Items

Let me share my Priorities

"Good governance is less about structure and rules than being focused, effective, and accountable." ― Pearl Zhu

Academic Rigor

Rigor is not busy work. It's about an innovative curriculum that takes students beyond doing math and physics on paper and applying it in their livelihood. If learning isn't applicable to the real world, what is the point?

Life skills

As adults we understand the importance of having life skills because they promote a student's future success. If organization and time management, critical thinking and problem solving, and even self and social awareness skills are learned, then academic rigor is enhanced and students benefit.

High Quality Teachers

The dedicated teachers in this district are among the best. They constantly push the boundaries to develop innovative curriculums that tie academic rigor and life skills together in order to prepare students to thrive. We must keep professional development avenues available for our educators so they succeed.

Equity Training

The district and community agree that equity training is another important tool quality teachers can use to support developing innovative curriculum. We must stay focused on providing our educators this important resource.

Secure and Safe Buildings

Buildings must be safe and healthy environments where our children can learn and our district employees can perform their duties.

District Communications

The district has made great progress toward better community communications. Yet, much more can be done. We must enhance the public relations department by hiring more staff to take advantage of all communication platforms.
