Big Issue: The district is in good shape, Inchausti said. She said inadequate funding is an issue, and she would like to see an improved tech program, where students are trained in tech. Students should be prepared for the real world, she said, and learn skills such as word processing and other kinds of software.
Experience: Inchausti said that her business experience and experience as a mother of eight will help her on the school board. Her children have gone to multiple schools.
She also has experience with 4H, FFA, and has good relationships with parents.
