In the last five years, student enrollment has increased by 1,000 students, and the district does not receive additional state funding to keep up. After holding down spending and controlling health care costs, staffing, and administrative expenses, there is simply nowhere left to cut.
A citizens’ committee has been working for the past year and a half to develop a facility master plan that alleviates overcrowding, updates aging buildings, and upgrades classrooms to accommodate current teaching methods. We installed modular classrooms (trailers) as a temporary solution, but enrollment is expected to grow by another 800 students during the next five years. We cannot keep up unless we do something now.
These two issues, 9 & 10, are absolutely critical to our community’s future, but – more importantly – they solve our current crisis.
Our Schools NEED Us Now.
Vote For Issues 9 & 10 from October 10 to November 6.
