Katie Howard is a 1996 graduate of Grady High School and mother of two students in the Maynard Jackson Cluster. She has formerly served as PTA President at Parkside Elementary School and King Middle School.

Howard said equity and accountability will be two of her goals if she is elected. Equity meaning every student has the resources they need to be successful. Accountability of the schools and Superintendent to the district’s families.

“I have the best mix of experience. My grassroots experience in schools, building community and my record of advocacy for students and families. I understand how to get things done in a policy-making body. I know how to connect and listen to people and take their feedback and input in and turn that into change. I know I have the most well-rounded meaningful experience when it comes to education and service in the City of Atlanta.”
