Why vote for David Kauffman for AISD Trustee District 7

David Kauffman is committed to equitable educational opportunity and achievement for all students. As a Board Trustee, he will genuinely collaborate with families, teachers, and other stakeholders. He has devoted his entire 30+ year career to public education, and has been involved in Austin ISD since 2004 as a campus and district administrator and parent. He is a proud AISD dad, whose children have attended a total of seven different Austin schools. His passion for equity and excellence, his deep experience in AISD, and his skills & knowledge regarding education, policy, and community engagement make him an ideal candidate. Most importantly, he has integrity and is committed to honesty, transparency, and two-way communication.

ExcellenceStudents deserve an excellent education from their public schools.

Excellence includes not only academic performance on tests, but also physical, social, and emotional well-being, career and technical skills, visual and performing arts, athletics, learning another language, engaging in community service, and a passion for learning. 

Equity“Educational equity means that each child receives what they need to develop to their full academic and social potential” (National Equity Project).

In AISD, equity requires disrupting the beliefs, policies, and practices that have resulted in historically underserved students and communities. By better serving those who are typically left behind, schools become better for all students.

EngagementMake decisions WITH people, not FOR people. 

Public school trustees and personnel must practice transparency, collaborative decision-making, two-way communication, and respect in their interactions with parents, community, staff, and students. Authentic engagement builds trust, improves morale, and leads to better decisions. It requires a continuous effort to understand diverse perspectives and experiences.
