Thank you to the hundreds of residents who participated in our Community Educational Priorities Survey earlier this year.  Your feedback is  important to us and that’s why we want to make sure we hear from every community we serve. 

Many of our local schools were built close to 60 years ago and need basic health and safety improvements. The District continues to work hard to address the most urgent and basic repairs such as leaking roofs, repairing outdated deteriorating water and sewer lines and outdated restrooms, and making other needed repairs so every student learns in a classroom that is clean and safe.

Furthermore, many neighborhood schools in our area have outdated security and safety features, including security fencing, and need updated alarms, emergency communications and fire safety systems to keep our teachers, staff and children safe.

The survey conducted also assessed other education priorities for our schools. The top community priorities included:

  • Retaining and attracting quality teachers
  • Health and safety improvements
  • Ensuring students have safe places to play
  • Upgrading deteriorating electrical systems and wiring
  • School repairs

You’ve told us how important vocational and job training is for our local high school students. Some of our local schools have outdated learning technology, equipment, and science labs.  Expanding and upgrading vocational education and job training programs in our local high schools in high-need fields such as nursing and other medical careers, agriculture, engineering and others, allows students who choose not to go to college to acquire real-world skills and technical knowledge to compete for a job when they graduate.
