Candidate san diego unified school district

District "A"

  • Focus on Early Child Education at the Pre-K through 8th grade levels to improve performance. Success at the early stages of learning lead to success in High School and into College or Vocational school. This will improve graduation rates.


  • Forge a balance between Public and Charter Schools through budget and program availability. Every student should have first choice to attend neighborhood schools without having to be placed in a lottery or be made to feel ashamed by public opinion because they attend a Charter School.


  • Open lines of communication with students, teachers, parents, and the community. I believe that feedback loops are one of the most important keys to producing the best result. 

"The Student, Teacher, or Parent Who Never Took a Chance at Engagement, Never Had a Chance."

Listening to You and working for Students

- S.Groce

My Goals

  • Increase transparency and accountability through community engagement and parent participation.


  • Ask tough questions. Our first priority is the quality of life throughout the entire educational experience of the students, teachers, and parents.


  • Keep resources focused on the students. We cannot afford to spend another $1 Billion with nothing to show for it.

My pledge
