Hilary Clark for Lowell School Committee

A Parent for Progress.

My Priorities:

Fiscal responsibility:

No more financial crisis. Controls are needed for ensure proper and accountable spending to keep budget in balance.

Quality education/facilities across the board:

Every student in Lowell deserves the best possible education regardless of what school they attend.


The district and schools should have clear goals with measurable outcomes that can be easily explained and understood.

Family engagement:

Establish strong school site councils at every school in the district.


Ensure clear lines of communication between schools and families using the most effective methods possible.

Best practices:

Share best practices, what is working in one school may work for another when it comes to strong family engagement.
