Citizens for Yelm Schools Newsletter with School Bond info

– From Citizens for Support of Yelm Schools (CSYS)
“Welcome to the first edition of the 2018 school bond initiative.”
“This newsletter serves to keep our community informed of the Citizens for Support of Yelm Schools’ (CSYS) action plan as we work toward passage of a new bond proposal in February 2018.”

Q: Why are we running a bond again?
A: Although the last two bond measures have not produced the necessary “ YES ” votes needed to pass, school population over-crowding and high classroom student-to-teacher ratios remain a concern. Starting this September, schools will experience a different grades configuration, attempting to ease the population strain (moving from K-6 configuration to a new K-5 elementary; 6-8 middle school; and 9-
12 high school). These measures were set in place by the district with school board approval. In the long-term, it will not be enough to curtail Yelm’s growth.
