I urge all of Monroe’s voters to vote yes twice on Feb. 5 to support our public schools.
On the ballot will be the renewal of the levy that funds quality student programs and school operations and a bond proposal to build and modernize student classrooms. Both deserve our community’s support.
The levy helps to fund everything our school’s need, but the state refuses to fund. Teachers, textbooks and help for struggling students are funded by this local school levy. Recently my family learned that one of our children has special learning needs. Our experience with the Monroe public schools has been incredibly positive. School staff prepared a learning program to meet our child’s needs. Much of the additional help my child and other struggling students must have to be successful is funded by the local taxes we pay on our school levy.
Every child deserves the right to a quality education no matter what their abilities or needs. Monroe public schools have proved to us that this is also their philosophy and they deserves our community’s support. Every child deserves a quality education in a quality classroom equipped with quality tools. Vote yes twice on Feb. 5.
