As an employee of the Marysville School District, I know it to be a vibrant school community with engaged families and passionate, knowledgeable staff. The teachers and all staff members and volunteers work hard together to ensure that students’ academic needs are met in a nurturing school setting.
On Feb. 14, Marysville voters will have the opportunity to say “yes” to the families that are served by the district. After two failed levy attempts last year, the school district has already faced deep cuts, which has resulted in larger class sizes. Further cuts are unfathomable, and this prospect places our schools in stark contrast with neighboring districts that fund their schools.
It is in the best interest of the people of Marysville to support the schools that help support their children. Surely the community wants the city to be a place that is attractive to families.
Having worked in Marysville for years, I simply do not believe that the larger community wants to say “no” to schools. However, we need people to vote. The last day to register in person to vote is February 14, the day of the election; the last day to register online is Feb. 6. The simple action of voting will make a difference to kids.
