Millage Passes!


On February 25 voters passed a 1 mill tax levy to support  the enhancement of technology and building security in our schools.  MAPS will be allocated about $245,000 each year  for the next ten years.  These funds could support:

 

a.  improved building security systems.

b.  greater technology access for all students through enhanced wireless infrastructure and selected one to one environments.

c.  maintainance and replacement of aging technology as needed (computers, audiovisual equipment, and network infrastructure, etc.)

d.  improved systems for student assessment, data collection and analysis, and remediation;  technology support and professional development.
