To Our Kirtland Schools Families,
Election Day is May 7. Issue 1 is a five-year renewal levy that is NOT A NEW TAX. The levy, originally approved by voters in 1999, raises $1.45 million annually – 10 percent of the district’s annual budget – and will help us maintain current educational programming and services.
The renewal is critical to the district as our revenue is projected to remain flat. We’ve worked hard to control and reduce expenses, and we will continue to do so. The Board and administration are committed to maintaining fiscal responsibility with a goal of ensuring every dollar spent benefits students and the community. We are committed to remaining transparent in our financial discussions with the community.
In March, we hosted a very successful Senior Citizen Appreciation Dinner. We invited our local senior citizens to join us for a free pasta dinner, sponsored by Angelo’s Pizzeria and Restaurant, and to enjoy the Kirtland High School Drama Club’s performance of “Rest Assured.” Our high school Jazz Band also provided dinner music. Thank you to everyone who attended and participated in this first-time event. Stay tuned for details on our fall event!
If you missed the State of the Schools presentation in early March, you can find it on our website at www.kirtlandschools.org.
It’s hard to believe the school year is already coming to a close. Our students and staff have accomplished so much this year, and we thank our community for their continued support. If you have any comments or questions, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 440.256.3311.
