Smart Solutions for Tomorrow's Schools


My name is Casey Ayers, and I'm running for your Duval County School Board. I’ve learned firsthand how to prepare for opportunities in the new economy, and want to ensure our students gain the skills to succeed, whether that means being prepared to enter a valuable vocational field, offer highly sought-after technical skills to businesses, start a venture of their own, or be better equipped to continue their education.

Our Community, Our Schools

Our schools are one of our most valuable civic assets. We must reengage with the community, local businesses, and alumni. Doing so, we can unlock new opportunities for mentorship, internships and philanthropy, all while better serving our community.

Safety is More Than Security

We can't afford to entrust our students' security to anyone but sworn law enforcement officers. We must also address the infrastructural opportunities that can make our schools more safe. Every action we take should have students first in mind.
