It is all about balance. We must provide “all” students with the best education possible. Academics, career training, life skills, music, art, sports, and clubs are all necessary in developing tomorrow’s citizens. No two students are the same. I understand how important both collaboration and ongoing communication between “all” district stakeholders are. I have no tolerance for wasteful spending, have learned that listening is paramount, and that “all” voices have something to offer. We can have high academics, extra-curricular activities, and an acceptable tax rate.
The pandemic has pushed many people to their wits end. With the vaccines, we hope for a much-improved situation. Our students will need more academic, social, and emotional services coming out of this pandemic – and I can contribute to that rebuilding/healing process.
My vitals; B.S. Business Administration University of Buffalo, M.B.A. Canisius College, retired after thirty-nine-year career at National Fuel in Information Technology. Extensive experience in accounting and finance, and leading diverse people working together to accomplish difficult tasks. Married 36 years, all three children attended Frontier from kindergarten through 12th grade. I would be very proud to continue representing you for a third term if you will have me.
My name is John Cordier and I’m running for Frontier Central School Board. I’m a retired Frontier teacher and coach who had the privilege to teach hundreds of wonderful students and work with incredible support staff, teachers and administrators. I understand the needs of our students and community. As a board member, I will work to maintain the highest standards for student success.
Frontier must provide an environment where students can safely learn and grow, where they are allowed to explore their individuality through meaningful academic and non-academic opportunities, while also acting in a fiscally responsible manner for the taxpayers. As a taxpayer, former teacher, step-parent of a Frontier student, and husband of a Frontier teacher, I bring a varied background and fresh perspective regarding the needs of students and staff, as well as Frontier residents and taxpayers.
The success of students, Pre-K through secondary, is my number one priority. I will do everything I can to enable our students to succeed and graduate so they may pursue their studies at an institution of higher learning or technical school, join the military, or begin a career in our community or elsewhere.
Please vote for me on May 18th. Thank you.
