To my friends & neighbors in Eden Prairie,
It’s been the greatest honor of my life to serve for the last three years as director and clerk on the Eden Prairie School Board. We built on past successes by increasing our graduation rates, making choice programming available to middle and high schoolers, creating capstone opportunities for HS students, and being good stewards of taxpayers’ dollars. We still have lots of work ahead of us in our continued pursuit of educational excellence. As I remain totally committed to this vital work, I’m announcing my candidacy for reelection to the Eden Prairie School Board this November, and I hope to earn your support.
There’s a lot at stake this November for our community, including the renewal of the voter-approved technology and operating levies. I’m a strong advocate for these renewals because I’ve seen how the support from our local community directly benefits our students. These are local dollars that stay local for our local schools, targeted at prioritizing academic excellence through expansion of student choice programming, maintaining and lowering class sizes for our youngest learners, and providing improved mental health and behavioral support. I hope you will support these referendums this fall. On the Board, I have worked hard to ensure the dollars provided by our community are used carefully to the benefit of our kids, and if reelected I pledge to hold the renewed levies to the same high standards.
As a network and cloud security professional, first-generation U.S. citizen, and a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army Reserves, I know how special Eden Prairie is. I am eager to continue applying my efforts and skills toward providing this community with the great schools it deserves.
I hope to earn your support on Nov. 8.
Debjyoti “DD” Dwivedy,
Eden Prairie School Board candidate
