Our speaker this week was Tammy Fuller, Principal for East Farms Elementary who presented the STEAM Magnet School profile. Tammy said theirs is a rags-to-riches story, as in the spring of 2011 they were told that their school was given a “poor rating” from the Washington Index. It was not a shining moment but it was pivotal for the school staff, students and parents.

Speakers today were the four local school superintendents: Ben Small CVSD, Tom Gresh EVSD, Randy Russell Freeman SD and Gene Sementh WVSD. They came to discuss local levies and bone issues coming up for voter approval. Just a reminder, bonds are for buildings and levies are for learning support. The school districts can only collect through a vote of the people and only what has been agreed upon, no more and no less than that. It was interesting to know that as there is growth in a school district the tax is spread across the new growth and the amount (which is based on the assessed valuation of your home) goes down per household.
