What are his priorities for the new school year?
The 2012-2013 school year has begun, and the Fairfax County School Board will be working from now until next summer to keep the doors open and the lights on for the nation's 11th-largest school system. On Tuesday, Patch spoke with Mount Vernon School Board representative Dan Storck to talk about the specific issues he will tackle this school year. Storck, who was reelected last November, has served on the board since 2003, and served as chairman from 2007-2009.

The home of the Mustangs is now open for business.
On Tuesday morning, 1,037 South County Middle School seventh and eighth graders walked into a new era. Seventh-grader Jaelize Gomez, 12, was anxious before entering the school. "I'm excited and nervous," Gomez said to Patch. "It's a new school, it's huge. I'm looking forward to drama, but I'm nervous about the homework. Sometimes it can take me an hour-and-a-half to finish." Fairfax County School Board member Dan Storck, who represents the Mount Vernon District, was also on-hand when school opened.

Mount Vernon District Board member is up for reelection on Nov. 8; he’s being challenged by Michele Nellenbach
Dan Storck has represented the Mount Vernon District as a member of the Fairfax County School Board since 2004. He’s running again this year, against challenger Michele Nellenbach. Patch caught up with Storck, a father of three and Fort Hunt resident, recently at the Hollin Hall Pastry Shop, where we discussed education and other issues. Patch: Why are you running again? Storck: “I have unfinished things we need to accomplish for Mount Vernon students, children and the community… You need seven votes to do anything. Those seven votes are the difference between rhetoric and action. The difference for me is I’ve gotten things done. Some of the barriers, some of the things I haven’t been able to get done, are the function of the existing …
