Longtime Davis resident Tom Adams filed candidacy papers on Friday for a four-year seat on the Davis school board. The election is Nov. 4.

Adams said, “The Davis school district will face new challenges with the implementation of the Local Control Funding Formula and Local Control Accountability Plan, the Common Core State Standards, the California English Language Development Standards and the California Next Generation Science Standards. As the Director of the Curriculum Frameworks and Instructional Resources Division of the California Department of Education and the Executive Director of the Instructional Quality Commission, I have led in the implementation of standards by creating K-12 curriculum guides, reviewing K-8 instructional materials, and making textbooks and instructional materials available in braille and large print.”

He added, “In the Davis school district, I served seven years on the Site Council at Cesar Chavez Elementary and two years at Emerson Junior High School. In addition, I served on the Spanish Immersion Master Plan Committee and on the district’s Strategic Implementation Plan — Assessment Subcommittee. It is my desire to use my experience of 22 years in education and 13 years as a parent to create a consensus and to move Davis forward. Our students are our greatest resource and we, the Davis community, should do all we can to help our students grow in their own unique ways. My goal is to not only win a seat on the School Board but to run a campaign that educates all of us — students, parents, teachers, administrators and trustees.”

Adams and his wife have a daughter who attended  Chávez Elementary and now Emerson Junior High. Adams did his undergraduate work at Chico State, and came to Davis in 1984 as a graduate student earning his master’s degree and Ph.D. in modern European history at UC Davis, and taught briefly at UCD in the 1990s.
