Making Sure Our Schools Have the Money They Need

Working Together for Our Schools: Our schools need enough money to do their job: teaching our kids. Matt Cone wants to make sure that the money our schools make stays right here, helping to make our schools even better.

How Matt Will Accomplish This:

  • Fight for Our Schools in Austin: Matt has already been to Austin many times to fight for the funding of our school district. He’s ready to keep fighting as a trustee to make sure our schools get fully funded. He has a smart plan to win more funding from the state and solve the problem of our schools losing money to recapture.
  • Pay Teachers Well: Matt believes in using our money to keep great teachers by paying them what they deserve.

Making Sure Every Child's Voice Counts

Ensuring Everyone in Spring Branch is Heard: For our school board to serve every child’s interests, it needs to represent the whole community. This way, we can make sure every student’s needs and goals are met. Matt Cone is dedicated to keeping our school board accessible to all families, emphasizing the importance of maintaining an “At Large” Board of Trustees.

How Matt Will Accomplish This:

  • Maintain ‘At Large’ Positions: Matt is committed to keeping our school board “At Large,” which means members represent the entire district. This approach ensures that decisions benefit every student equally.
  • Foster Community-Led Accountability: Matt insists that the school board must listen to the community it serves, making choices that reflect the best interests of all students and families.

Serving With and For the Community

Acting on What We Believe: Strong leaders do what’s best for everyone. Matt Cone wants our school board to be a model of this kind of leadership, choosing educational practices that make learning better for us.

How Matt Will Accomplish This:

  • Support Block Scheduling for High Schools: Matt supports implementing block schedules for high schools to make learning more effective and better use our resources like our newly built $100 million dollar Guthrie Center.
  • Lead by Our Community’s Values: Matt wants the school board’s actions to reflect what our community believes in.

Getting Our Kids Ready for the Future

Teaching Us for Tomorrow: The world around us is changing quickly, with new technology and different careers emerging all the time. Matt Cone is dedicated to making sure our education system keeps up, helping us excel in traditional subjects, the arts, and sports. He also wants to make sure we learn about personal finance and how to handle social media and influence responsibly. Keeping our schools safe is at the top of his list, too.

How Matt Will Accomplish This:

  • Focus on Core Excellence: Matt is pushing for us to be the very best in essential school subjects, arts, and sports, making sure we’re ready for whatever the future holds.
  • Teach Real-World Skills: He wants to add classes on managing money and understanding the power of social media, so we’re prepared for life outside school.
  • Prioritize School Safety: Matt believes our schools should be safe places where we can learn without worry, ensuring every student feels secure and supported.
