District 4: Jerry Kozatch on the issues
October 5, 2005
Steamboat Springs School Board, District 4
Occupation: owner of Ambiente home furnishings store
On the issues:
Montessori: Doesn’t support a publicly funded Montessori school in Steamboat at this time. District performance is repeatedly rated very high and a charter school risks diluting the excellent school system. Supports School Board’s decision to challenge integrity of the Charter Schools Act.

Small class size: Small class size is a high priority for the community. It’s impossible to judge the single most important factor in providing a superior learning environment and small class size must be balanced with other important education pieces such as excellent teachers and strong curriculum.
Policy governance: Effective method but dependent on the policies and the people running the school board. Needs a more flexible communication sytem.
