As principal of Kent-Meridian High School, I am sharing information about the Kent School District Special Election on February 13, 2018. If Propositions 1 and 2 are approved, local school tax rates will decrease over the next six years. These levies provide nearly twenty percent of our total budget and the tools necessary for our students to be successful. The state passed legislation to fund education and it is a step in the right direction, but the state is not yet fully covering all basic education costs. We still need a local levy. Every child, regardless of background, deserves an opportunity to achieve his or her potential by receiving an excellent education with high-quality teachers and staff and access to technology in a well-maintained school environment.
Wednesday, March 28th Presentations begin at 12:30 Rooms and times will be assigned closer to the presentation date. (This is only 12 weeks away. While you are expected to take ownership of your Oral Presentation and Culminating Project, you may ask your advisory teacher or other staff for additional guidance and support. Presentation directions and requirements can be found on the KM Website. https://www.kent.k12.wa.us/domain/782#SeniorOralPresentation. Do not procrastinate and ask for help sooner than later. ) If you have further questions or concerns, please contact your advisory teacher, counselor, or Dr. Devlin.
Supervision of student athletes will be provided between the early release time and regular practice and event schedules.
Attend one of six opportunities to learn, ask questions, and engage.
Remember to vote by February 13, 2018.
