Letter to the Western Residents
Dear Western Community Members,
On Tuesday, February 25th the voters in Western School District approved the renewal of the Non-Homestead Millage. On behalf of the Board of Education, administrative team, teachers and support staff, I would like to thank all who supported and voted for the renewal of this millage. Thanks to the support of our community, Western will continue receive the maximum per pupil funding allowed by state law.
As a district, we are committed to providing the children of our community with a quality education that will prepare them for college and/or career opportunities after graduation. While not every graduate is destined for college, every graduate needs to be prepared to enter the work force or continue their education towards a career.
Currently, Jackson County schools are working with manufacturing leaders in our community to address the need for skilled workers. I am looking forward to seeing where Western and the rest of Jackson County can take K-12 education in the near future. Growing partnerships with business and industry will help build a strong work force for Jackson County and make our community a more attractive place for business and families to locate.
Thank you again, for supporting Western School District.
