We are advocates for our TSD schools, students and Educators
Many of us are enjoying the benefits of a growing economy in the workplace and our own homes. But, following decades of decreased public education funding, stagnant compensation and attrition of quality district staff, and deferment of financial responsibility for maintaining our aging district facilities and providing proper resources, our students are bearing the burden every single day.
Our population continues to grow in leaps and bounds with more diverse groups of students and increased needs for resources. Our schools are expected to prepare every single student for lifelong success through career development, expanded curriculum, mandated assessments, and other critical interventions. We're asking our educators and facilities to take on more and more with less and less.
Our community is at a crossroads where we can continue along the path of complacency - doing nothing is a great way to change nothing. Or, we can take a cue from our students' passion for education and step-up in supporting all of them through meaningful action.
On behalf of a growing alliance of concerned citizens, we urge you to become more informed about the current state of our district while looking at the "Thompson Reinvented" plans put together by the Master Plan Committee and to vote 'YES' on 3D AND 3E, the mill and bond for Thompson Schools this November to move forward in the best interest of our entire community.
Please invite your interested friends and neighbors to join our coalition - our power is in numbers and many hands make light work!
