A 35-year-old father armed with fresh ideas is hoping to be elected to Pamela Moynihan's seat on the Albemarle County School Board.
But Moynihan has experience and some new ideas of her own.
said that if she's
elected to a third four-year term, she'll work to ensure the school division spends efficiently, increases educational opportunities using new technology and provides teachers competitive pay.
"People are very willing to support education.
But they also think about their pocketbooks when they're supporting education," Moynihan
said, adding that things such as electronic books and online high school courses can reduce spending and provide students with unique opportunities.
Moynihan, a senior analyst for the National Ground Intelligence Center, said it's clear that the division will have less revenue than officials would like during the next budget cycle, so officials need to have game plans in which student learning opportunities increase and the achievement gap narrows, despite less money being available.
, 51, said one of the keys to providing students a top-notch education is by employing high-quality teachers.
"We need to have the best teachers teaching our kids," Moynihan
"They're going to go wherever they can, to get the best salary."
Even if the economy continues to decline, Moynihan
would still work for teacher pay raises, even if it means the division will have to settle for fewer teachers.
"If it's really, really bad and something has to go, I would increase class sizes," Moynihan
Though teachers didn't get pay raises this school year, Moynihan
said that the school division can't afford to continue pay freezes, because doing so would damage morale and make it more difficult for Albemarle to have the best teachers.
As with Moynihan
, Gallaway is campaigning on a vow to be fiscally conservative.

School Board member Pamela Moynihan said Thursday that it's vital for the division to use technology to provide opportunities students wouldn't have otherwise.
In some cases, online courses, such as those that teach foreign languages, allow students to take courses in less common subjects, Moynihan said.
At times, technology can also allow the school system to do a better job teaching, while spending less money doing so.
"It's not just textbooks and classrooms anymore," Moynihan
and Diantha McKeel announced before the meeting that they'd be seeking another term on the School Board in the November elections.
