PRIORITY #5

HIGH QUALITY EDUCATION = PARTNERS OF PROGRESS


 

Our city’s schools are among the best in the state and the country. As mayor I pledge to work with our educators to help maintain safe schools and expand educational opportunities for all. We must continue to work together as a community to keep our schools top quality so that families continue to choose O’Fallon to raise their children.

Ensure Safe and Secure Schools – As mayor I will work with the O’Fallon Police Department’s School Resource Officer initiative. This vital program not only provides our schools with much needed assistance to provide a safe, secure and drug free environment for learning, but helps students learn to trust our law enforcement team.

Recruit a Higher Education Institution – As mayor, I will make it a priority to recruit a higher education college or university to O’Fallon. With all of the progress happening in our city, now is the time to expand our educational offering to include a college or university. I will actively be recruiting both public and private universities and colleges to consider locating a satellite campus, a medical school partnership or expanded community college offerings right here in O’Fallon. This will not only bring educational opportunities, but high quality jobs to our city and in turn more residents who will want to live and work here.
