SCHOOL FUNDING MEETING:
Governor Brownback has asked for input into what a new school funding formula should look like in the state of Kansas. The Franklin County school districts have worked on a funding idea and would like input from the four communities that are involved. There will be four community meetings for you to provide input. The meetings are scheduled below.
October 25 Wellsville High School
October 26 Ottawa District Office
November 2 Central Heights Theater
All meetings begin at 7:00 pm
USD 289 community members:
Below is a description of what our Commissioner of Education, Dr. Randy Watson has been
working on this last two years. He, along with State Board of Education Members traveled the
state to ask questions about what education should look like in Kansas. This is the information
they have published and adopted. We are working to fulfill this vision of Kansas education and
are excited to say we had started a movement in this direction already. It will be a long process
but I am very proud of our students, teachers and the community support for this movement.
Congratulations to the following Kansas Honors students who were recognized for being in the top 10% of their class. Anna Kline, Hope, Kearney, Rylee Winters, Taylor Cunningham, not pictured Lauren McDaniel.
Middle School Book Drive:
FBLA along with the Middle School Library is hosting an all-school book drive. The drive will continue until November 18, which is the last day of American Education Week. This is a great opportunity to clear out those gently used books that are no longer being read and taking up space on your book shelf. Please take any books you wish to donate to your SSR class. There will be a reward for the SSR room with the most books donated based on student ratio to number of books donated.
