Our district is underfunded for the needs of our operations, maintenance, and/or capital improvements.

Rick Jansons
Jansons

Our community has strongly supported the district's needs, passing levies with a super-majority.

Ben Griggs
Griggs

Funding in our school district is adequate for operations, maintenance, and/or capital improvements.

In the context of the district budget, our teachers are compensated fairly. Any raises should be through cost of living adjustments or the annual step increases built into the salary schedules for additional education and years of experience teaching.

We have worked hard to improve teacher pay, and I continue to value their work.

Teachers in our district are under-compensated and should be a higher budget priority than they are currently.

The school board is doing a good job of seeking input from parents and educators.

Rick Jansons
Jansons

I think we need to do much better in getting input from all stakeholders. We also need to do a much better job of communicating with them.

Ben Griggs
Griggs

The school board should do a much better job of seeking input from parents and educators.

The school district must prioritize the safety of students and staff during this ongoing pandemic.

Rick Jansons
Jansons

We must open safely. This means we must simultaneously follow public health requirements and do our best to keep our schools open. This is not an either/or question. We must do both.

Ben Griggs
Griggs

The school district must prioritize getting children back into regular, in-person learning.
