We have great news to report.  Germantown Superintendent Jeff Holmes has announced that he is running for State Superintendent of Public Instruction (DPI).  We now have a chance for real reform of education in this state.  

  • Bringing back local control
  • Much less emphasis on testing
  • Putting accountability where it belongs - In the hands of local communities
  • Move education forward - no more ineffective reforms
  • ​Re-gain public trust in DPI
  • DPI as a support network, not a compliance agency
  • Focus on learning, not standards and assessments
  • Flexibility for teachers and districts

Brian Medved     Germantown

School Board

(Seat #4) Director

My name is Brian Medved, and I'm committed to making your voice heard in Germantown. Like you, I want to play an active role in making my community, state and country a safer, better place to raise my children, run my business, and forge a future filled with unlimited promise. 


If you share my vision, I urge you to connect with me and help make it happen! Together, we can make a meaningful difference-- for our families, our communities, and our country.


We took the first step to stop Common Core in our district, but it is my belief that it needs to be stopped across the nation.  Join me in the fight to save our children from what will be the most expensive, risky experiment on our children, destroying their future...When it fails, we could stand to lose an entire generation of our youth...

Working Hard For You
