I would like to sincerely thank all those who supported me in my unsuccessful run for re-election to the S-GI School Board.
Congratulations to the new board members. It was great to see all of the interest that the race elicited. The school board faces many challenges, including loss of revenue, curriculum mandates and student safety. The district and board will need our support to work through these challenges and more.
In two years the district will face a two and half million dollar shortfall with diminished reserves.
The board and school administrators will have to be very creative to close this gap unless the state restores lost funds. Fortunately we have a great school superintendent and excellent school staff who are up to the challenge.
We will all need to work together to continue to strive for quality education in our district.
A big thanks to outgoing board members, De Bonnenberger and Joan Kelly, for their great service to their school and the community.
