It’s been a great start to 2017 and we are gearing up for a busy spring ahead. There is much work being done behind the scenes to keep our schools running smoothly.
Currently, the schools’ principals and district administrators are working with our director of business administration and me to finalize the proposed 2017-18 school year budget. We are analyzing every proposed expenditure carefully and thoughtfully to ensure that the district remains “under the tax cap” while maintaining the quality and integrity of the education we strive to provide for the students in the Mount Pleasant School District. We have formed a Citizens Budget Advisory Committee to provide feedback on what is important to the community. The members of this committee serve as ambassadors for the school district and are happy to share information they learn about the budgeting process with the public. There will be two informational presentations on the proposed budget at the March 8th and March 15th Board of Education meetings. Please save the date and come to learn more. After the board adopts a proposed budget, the community will have the opportunity to vote on it on Tuesday, May 16th.
In other news, we are excited to be in the planning phases for the work that will be taking place this summer as part of the facilities bond that was passed in October. As soon as the students are dismissed for the summer, the construction crews will be moving onto the Westlake campus to begin the initial work of installing new roofs over the middle school and the high school’s auditorium. By the time the 2017-18 school year begins, real progress will be evident. Work will continue at all sites during after school hours and holiday periods as the year progresses. We are very happy to be tackling these long overdue upgrades.
As we continue to plan ahead, I look forward to a successful second half of the school year.
