Join Us for Our Community Conversations

I would like to personally invite you to join us at one of three Community Conversations as we address the financial future and quality of the Kings District. Our financial forecast shows a need to increase funding as early as 2017. Our Kings Community supported an Operating Levy in 2010 which has lasted three years longer than expected. While district expenses are going up and state funding is flat, Kings is in the position of looking at how to fund district expenses going forward. I am looking to to gather community input on how to proceed with funding the future of Kings Schools. 

I will be asking for input regarding whether we should ask for new money by running a levy, (and if so, how much is reasonable), by making spending cuts, or a combination of both. If we are not able to secure new money, it appears that it will be necessary to make significant reductions in order to pay expenses.

Please join me and my staff on either March 1 at Columbia Intermediate School, March 2 at South Lebanon Elementary School, and March 7 at the Kings Junior High School Multipurpose Room. All conversations will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Thank you for your continued support. Together we will continue to be #KingsStrong!
