Daylon Caldwell, Candidate for CISD School Board Place 7.

A little about myself, my name is Daylon D. Caldwell, I am a lifelong resident of the great city of Corsicana, TX where I graduated from Corsicana High School. I attended Dallas Institute of Funeral Service, where I earned my Associates of Applied Science in Funeral Service. I am currently employed at Griffin-Roughton Funeral Home where I have been serving and giving back to the community for a number of years now. I’m a very strong believer that our children are our future and we should give them every opportunity we can to ensure they have a successful life, and I personally believe I’m a prime example of that.
As a community leader that serves the community everyday, I understand that education is the foundation from which we build strong, solid communities. I know the value of talented teachers and I believe I can help make decisions that support strong teaching and ensure that teachers and schools have the resources necessary to educate our children to be successful in the world today. It’s crucial we listen to the parents and community for which they know our children best, if we are going to build a solid foundation necessary for our children.
I believe that a school board must be responsive and receptive to parents, staff, students and the community at large, encouraging an open dialogue. The board must take input from all groups and weigh all the facts before making a decision. A Board member is a trustee of the community that elects him or her. That Trustee must be accessible and willing to collaborate with all members of the community; that includes all District staff. Anyone that comes before the board has the right to be heard not just to speak. A school board member must build public understanding, support and participation.
My efforts as a board member would center on serving all of the children in the community; one child is no more important than another. Our schools are here to serve the educational needs of all the children. All stakeholders; parents, all district personnel Certificated, Classified, and Management, as well as students must be partners in this endeavor if we are to be successful.
By working together we can all share in the knowledge and satisfaction that we have provided for the educational needs of all children, and continue building a district where students, parents, teachers, and staff feel they are welcome and that they belong.
