Kyle Juckett for Seekonk School Committee
My name is Kyle Juckett. Last year I was one of several that ran for a seat on the Seekonk School Committee. I'm a father of three children who attend Martin Elementary School, a husband to an amazing wife, and a police officer in a neighboring city. I began attending the school committee meetings almost two years ago after learning the educational challenges my son was facing, which I'm sure many can relate to here in Seekonk.
My mission remains the same; providing the best education we can to our children, to make sure they are set up to overcome their challenges and succeed. We have great teachers here in Seekonk. I've meet many over my three children's years at Martin, and speak from my own personal experiences. We need to make sure they are obtaining the resources and tools they need to provide that educational foundation to our children. We need to find out what's working, what's not, and adapt where needed. They are one of, if not the most critical component of our educational system. Now more than ever we need to listen to those on the front line teaching our kids. We must not look at neighboring districts or statewide numbers and feel content with where we sit, but push ourselves to excel and be the best this town can be.
We need clear cut transparency. We need to have open conversation with the constituents of this town. We need to make sure questions are answered, and that we address concerns that parents and taxpayers raise. Transparency can sometimes be a word casually thrown around to check a box; not with me. Our educational system is a public resource, and that is exactly why the school committee exists. We need to respect parental rights, and let all parents know that they have our support.
Through my professional experience, I hope to bring additional assistance in the area of school safety. We have a wonderful police department here in Seekonk. As a police officer, I have a critical understanding of the law enforcement side of this topic. I would love to help be a resource, one that can help communicate with all parties involved; the people, the school committee, administration, and the police department. There is nothing more paramount than to make sure our children are safe.
Thank you for taking the time reading this, and please consider a vote for me, Kyle Juckett, on April 3rd, 2023.

I hope parents and grandparents become more involved as well as any seekonk resident in the schools and children. I'm going to be checking your ideas and I'm liking what I heard so far
