About the Candidate
Hi, I’m Deron Tross and I am running for the Charles County Board of Education, serving District 3. I am running because I feel strongly that children are our future. They need a solid education that equips them with the skills necessary to build successful lives. I believe that the future of Charles County Public Schools depends on the ability of our elected leaders to make choices that promote excellence and equity for all students. This means supporting teachers to do their best work with our scholars and incorporating the input of faculty, staff, families, and community members when designing policies that impact the school system. And it means holding County leadership accountable when test scores flatline, enrollment fails to meet projections and when our scholars are disadvantaged when it comes to technology-based programs and other educational resources based on their geographic location. With your support, I hope to be an advocate for our scholars and the voice representing our community in matters impacting the County’s Public School System.
