A view from the inside

The typical tale of the public’s engagement with their community school system is fairly distant and uninvolved. Unless you have kids in the schools, most people are peripherally aware of their schools — only taking note when they encounter a school bus on the roads or a student raising funds knocks on the door.

Crafting the right proposal

Last Wednesday, the Eagle County Schools’ Board of Education voted unanimously to place two questions on the November ballot. The first, a mill levy override, would provide ongoing funds for things like recruiting and retaining quality teachers and staff, reducing class size and restoring key programs like art, music, physical education and counseling. The second, a bond, would provide funds for improving safety and security systems across the district as well as some needed building expansions and improvements in some of our oldest and most crowded schools.
