FEBRUARY 8, 2011 BOND ELECTION INFORMATION
In 1995, a committee comprised of school patrons, district personnel, and community leaders was formed. Since then membership on the committee has been open to all interested patrons of Moore Public Schools. The committee's purpose is to serve as a bridge between our community and the school district – linking us as one. Its additional purpose is to provide for two-way communication between our patrons and our district leaders, working together to insure that student, patron, and district needs are being met efficiently and effectively. Today the committee is still at work. Known as the Patrons Advisory Committee, the group continues to work to address the needs of the school district.
Our school district is growing at a rapid rate. We have seen an increase in over 500 students over the past year and anticipate continued growth. Additionally, our student body has grown by more than 1300 students since 2007 – the year before our last bond issue was passed. The Patrons Advisory Committee, the Moore Board of Education, and our district administrators all agree, as I am sure each of you do, that our students need to be taught in safe, secure, and well-maintained facilities. In addition, school and classroom sizes must be kept at a manageable level. Teachers and students need modern technology along with the right instructional materials as they strive to meet the challenges of providing and receiving a quality education.
After carefully considering the recommendations of the Patrons Advisory Committee, the Board of Education has voted to hold a special bond election on February 8, 2011 with three propositions to be brought before district voters. Proposition #1 will allow for new district construction, renovation, repair, and equipment projects; Proposition #2 addresses district needs for technology and child nutrition; Proposition #3 will allow the district to purchase transportation equipment, including new school buses. More specific information with project details of each proposition is included in this bond issue newsletter.
Over the years, the citizens of the community have made education a top priority. We are dedicated to doing everything possible to insure that our students are receiving the greatest possible benefit from the community's investment in their education. We thank you for your support over the years. I urge you to vote on February 8, 2011, and if you have any questions concerning any of the above propositions, please call me at 735-4249 or e-mail me at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
