School board candidate Sykora wants to improve homework completion rates
Why are you running for Valley View School Board?
I am running because even though Valley View has done some excellent things to stay ahead of the bar, I think there are some elements of the New View that are not working in our system, and I want to work on changing them.
Why should you be elected?
I really feel that, even though some things have improved, various things have gone downhill. There are children who do not complete homework because it only counts for 10 percent of their grade. I would like to get to the point where children feel they need to do work in order to accomplish the grade they receive.
What is the biggest issue facing Valley View School District?
The biggest issue right now is finances and our funds in Springfield being cut. We now also have a financial issue with Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital and paying them back. Another issue is we need to get children to the point where they want to do work and not just pass a test.
