The Chewelah School District has reached a pivotal point in time when we can no longer ignore the status of our facilities. This District has made eight attempts to pass a building bond in the last 30 years and have been unsuccessful every time, however, we can no longer continue to leave it for another.
No one likes to add to their tax burden, however, the decision to put this matter on the ballot was not made lightly. Many wonderful people have given countless hours to study this situation to determine the most effective, feasible thing to do for Chewelah schools. The passing of this bond will result in greater efficiency for the district, not to mention a needed boost to our community.
One of the first things people look at when they move to a new community is the quality of their hospital and schools. Chewelah is blessed with wonderful educators who work very hard in less than desirable facilities, and our academic scores are going up and up. We are not asking for extravagance, but for updating and maintaining what we have. That is a responsibility we owe to future generations.
Many people before us bore the tax burden of the high school when it was built almost forty years ago, and now it is our turn to step up and say, “Yes, for Chewelah kids.” We request that you choose to support our schools.
