Prior to the start of Winter Break, we received notification from our North Central Educational Service District (NCESD) #171 out of Wenatchee, that prank calls to 911 reporting fake emergencies at schools in our state are on the rise. This false reporting, called “swatting,” is a criminal harassment technique designed to trick emergency services into sending police or emergency service response teams to schools or other places where an emergency has not occurred.
Season's Greetings and good morning.
As I sit in my chair early this morning I had the following thoughts, so I thought I'd share them with you.
Greetings and good morning.
Following Tuesday's elections, I wanted to take a moment to pause and say “THANK YOU!” As of the writing of this message, our 2 ballot propositions are fairing as follows:
- Capital Projects - PASSING with a 55.68%
- Buses - PASSING 59.54%
- As a reminder: Levies require a simple majority (50%) to pass. Bonds require a supermajority (60%) to pass.
Greetings and good afternoon.
This UPDATE is intended to...
- Remind us about last year's words of importance.
- Build awareness of this year's.
- Provide a space for me to share what I'm thinking about.
- Generate thinking, conversation, awareness, and positive action.
You may recall that the last bond vote approved funding to remodel Grant Elementary. Last week we opened bids from contractors hoping to approve the project. What we found is that at current pricing, we are unable to afford the project. Bids were submitted at nearly 40% more than what we have budgeted. At this time, we cannot, in good conscience or as good stewards of taxpayer money, accept this project. Grant Elementary construction will be delayed.
