"If we are to equip the next generations to become exceptional citizens, we must prioritize a holistic education ecosystem, ensure improved educational outcomes, and create a safe environment for all students and teachers. I look forward to working alongside you on the Wayzata School Board to make that vision a reality."
My name is Paras Bhende, a proud Wayzata School parent and a long-time resident of Plymouth. When we decided to move to Plymouth for the Wayzata School District, little did we know how profound an impact it would have on our lives. Every day, we witness our daughters embodying the values of critical thinking, integrity, and character. Driven by my deep passion for children's education, coupled with my extensive corporate and non-profit leadership experience, I am thrilled to announce my candidacy for the upcoming 2023 Wayzata School Board elections.
Good school districts like Wayzata lay the groundwork for shaping our future leaders and inventors, guiding them to become exceptional citizens. Strong school districts are not just about academic excellence; they play a pivotal role in driving economic development. We attract businesses and industries seeking exceptional talent by producing a skilled and knowledgeable workforce. This synergy creates job opportunities and fosters prosperity within our school district communities. Such opportunities allow our children not only to support the communities, and local economy but also help them to be better as they grow in their careers.
I am committed to partnering with our existing school leadership, students, teachers, and the community. Together, we can address challenges, nurture growth, and build a better future for all.
While various concerns may arise, I am dedicated to keeping our focus on the core mission: providing top-notch education, fiscal accountability, and ensuring the safety and well-being of our students regardless of age, race, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and special needs. We can overcome challenges and achieve our goals by keeping our priorities aligned.
Please join my team by voting and electing me for the Wayzata School Board.
