Board of Education Members
September Issue by Lana Ford, Board Trustee
Greetings Viking Families:
First, the Board of Education (BOE) would like to thank you for your support of the Bond proposal this past August. We encourage you to participate in upcoming events to share your thoughts. This is a “community project” and we need everyone’s involvement to meet the needs of our students. The BOE has several upcoming “Conversations with Community” events scheduled. You can see the schedule on the Tri County Area Schools website, and on the TC Facebook page. We welcome public comment at the monthly BOE meetings as well. Plus, we will be providing regular updates to keep everyone aware and informed of the progress being made.
So many good things have happened over the past summer. The new road leading into the High School and Middle School from Amy School road is a welcome addition. The traffic flow at the first High School football game was so much better and safer. The new road was funded by our Sinking Fund.
The new well at the Middle School was completed and tested this past summer, and we are happy to report the water is PFAS free and safe for consumption We are thankful for the work completed prior to the start of school. Tri County Area Schools was the recipient of a State grant for just over $100,000 to help pay for the new well to ensure that our students, staff, and community have safe drinking water.
Enrollment is up with our Kindergarten. We are excited that more families are coming to Tri County and that we are getting more future “Vikings” enrolled! The hallways at MacNaughton Elementary are filled with enthusiastic and excited voices!
Each year our students are provided with new educational opportunities. Please take time to learn about our Advanced Placement English class at the High School, Dual Enrollment, Early College and the two excellent Career Technical Education Centers our students have to choose from to focus their education and talents. If you would like more information regarding any of these educational opportunities, please contact one of our school counselors.
We are looking forward to the 2019-2020 school year. Working together we can provide and ensure that all our students receive a quality educational experience that meets their specific needs. If you ever have questions and/or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
Again, we appreciate and are grateful for your support. Each BOE member feels blessed to be of service to our Tri County Area community and especially to serve our students.
