2015 board candidate: Jonathan Westfield

2 Year Term

Contact information from Champaign County Clerk’s webpage:

  • 608 E Tomaras, Savoy, IL 61874

Main ideas

  • Supports partnerships with trade unions and providing non-college post-graduation employment paths for students
  • Parental involvement in “helping to develop and maintain a safe, productive, and positive learning environment for all students”
  • focus on new high schools, possibly three high schools
  • maybe each school should have a focus; trades, STEM, ARTS, etc
  • achievement gap widening. Invest more in the front end, PreK – 3rd grade

Jonathan applied for an appointment earlier, both after Stig Lanesskog (summer of 2013) and Scott MacAdam (February of 2014) stepped down from their board positions, along with Azark Cobbs and Chuck Jackson.
