State of Our Schools~
A reminder that the WCSD will hold its State of the Schools presentation on Tuesday, January 27, 2014. The meeting will run from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. in the Parkside School Auditorium. This is an excellent opportunity to get an overview of current academic, facilities and finances. All from the community are welcome to attend.
The 20/20 Vision Committee continues to meet regarding the Phase II needs for the Westlake City School District’s (WSCD) elementary schools. We encourage you to follow the progress of the committee at http://www.wlake.org/about/facilities/Pages/20-20visioncommittee.aspx. Through discussions with the 20/20 Committee and feedback from the community the BOE has decided that more discussion is necessary in order to move forward on a potential bond issue to support Phase II. Additional community input and involvement will determine how to structure the elementary buildings to best serve students and community.
The BOE is considering Permanent Improvement Levy (PI) for the May ballot. Monies generated from a PI can only be used for items anticipated to last five years for longer for example: technology, building safety, building/property maintenance, books and transportation. These monies may not be used day to day expenses of running the district (salaries, benefits, utilities, supplies etc.). A PI would cover ONLY tangible items with a life span of five years or more i.e.: safety and security, building repairs, technology, transportation needs and other equipment purchases.
The next BOE meeting is on January 26, 2015 at 6:00 pm. We strongly encourage members of our community to attend the State of the Schools event as well as the Board of Education meetings to keep informed and obtain answers to questions you may have about our schools.
