Message from the Superintendent: Thank you, Voters!

Now that the school bond election has been certified by King County Elections with a final approval rate of 74.28 percent, I wanted to take a moment to thank our school district’s voters for helping shape the future of our schools. This continues a tradition of support in our schools that has left a lasting legacy of academic excellence and opportunities for our students, staff and community.

Whether you voted for or against the bond, your participation in the democratic process is what makes our community, state and nation profoundly great. Democracy is a participatory sport, and takes all of us to make it work. 

I especially want to thank the many community members who attended one of the presentations, submitted questions or visited our website for more information about the bond. Your willingness to seek understanding about the proposal is deeply appreciated.

I value the confidence that our voters and community have placed in our school system. The District will continue to act as a good steward of the community’s investment in our schools and provide opportunities for community input and participation in the project design processes. You’ll be hearing more about these opportunities in the coming months.

I look forward to continuing the collaboration together as we continue to build the foundation for our students’ success through the amazing learning spaces that will be developed thanks to the hard work and belief of so many.

In gratitude,
Rebecca Miner
Superintendent
