Modern, Efficient, Community Driven
2017 Carlton Schools Bond Referendum
Greetings from the Superintendent
Welcome to our 2017 Carlton Public Schools’ Bond Referendum website. We hope you and many others will seek out information here so that you can make an informed decision before you vote.
Our theme, Embracing Our Future, is about our current students, and our future students. It is about building your confidence in the future of our school district and our community.
Modern, Efficient, Community Driven, describes the vision we have for our buildings and how, with your assistance, they can help sustain our future. Carlton’s buildings are significantly older than those of neighboring districts, and they are showing their age. We propose to modernize South Terrace Elementary School and build an addition for high school students so educational programs and services can be provided more efficiently and effectively. We asked community members to help us design this plan, and you came through. Since the beginning of our process, you have provided outstanding interest, input and feedback that the School Board has taken into consideration at every step of the decision-making process.
I would like to extend another heartfelt thank you to the community for approving last year’s operating levy renewal. Your vote allows us to better serve students in the classroom, and we are extremely appreciative of your support.
Please watch for more information about the referendum by email, direct mail, on Facebook, in the Pine Journal, and in person at meetings and presentations. Our goal is for all voters to be informed of the facts and have their questions answered.
You may also contact me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (218-384-4225 x 113) with any questions, or if you would like to meet individually or with a group.
