My name is Morgan Johnson. I am running for Bossier School Board in District 3 which is the Benton/Cypress Lake area. This is my first time to run for public office. There are several reasons why I chose to offer myself for this position. I see quality education as the best hope that our children have for their future. I believe that we need new leaders on the School Board who are not connected to the events of the past, whose only interest is quality education for our children, accountability from the Bossier School Board administrators and getting the most out of every penny of taxpayer money. I want to see transparency and all Bossier School Board business done in an honest ethical professional manner. My hope is that the next board will develop a vision for the future of Bossier Schools and where we want to be in the next 10, 20 or 30 years. We should continue and enhance the security programs that Chief Dison is in charge of as student/teacher/employee safety is of the utmost importance. I believe that we must hire and retain the very best teachers and support employees we can. We should provide our teachers with the resources and tools they need so they can educate our children in the best possible manner. I don't understand why we don't have air conditioned busses for our children to ride on and I feel this should have been addressed years ago. I believe that the Bossier School Board should have competent managers who will deliver quality education to our students, best return on taxpayer investments and deliver on board approved initiatives. I also think we should initiate quality continuous improvements programs to reduce costs and improve student achievement. I want to see the Bossier School systems run in such a way that we can achieve quality educational goals, reduce taxes and provide the taxpaying Bossier Parish citizen the government the best return on investment possible. I will always be grateful to the Bossier Parish School system as all my daughters were educated in the Bossier system and all have turned out to be productive citizens. I want to give back to a system that has given so much to my family and my wish is for all our Bossier school students to turn into productive educated citizens. I also hope that the Bossier Parish School system will never go through scandals and loose management practices of the past four years again and that all future boards will ensure our taxpayer dollars are put to best use by holding top managers accountable for every penny. I will work hard for our students and Bossier taxpayers.
