Please take time to contact your local legislators to share your opinion on two things.
1) Legislators are considering when schools should be allowed to start school. Until now, schools have been able to determine the best date and we have surveyed parents to help us determine that date. For next year, we have been told that we cannot start before August 31. We know that start date impacts the end date. (This year we started August 18 and plan to be done the end of May; next year we would probably not finish until sometime around or after June 5.)

2) Legislators are considering how they fund schools. The House has approved an increase of about 1.25% but much of it would come with strings attached and so we would have about $60,000 to use towards any increased costs in energy, food, textbooks, insurance or salaries. We would need to consider cutting the number of staff we have to serve our students which would result in larger class sizes, less classes offered at the high school or other reductions in opportunities for how we serve students.

Our local legislators include:
