Maintenance and Operations Levy

On March 10th the Coeur d’Alene School District will ask voters to consider approving a two-year Maintenance and Operations (M&O) Levy of $15M. The current M&O levy expires in June 2015. 

 

Local taxpayer support of public schools has become essential. One out of five dollars the district spends on educating our students comes from the local levy.  Levy dollars fund the day-to-day operations of the district’s educational programs, bridging the gap between the funding provided by the state and the cost of meeting the educational needs of our students.

 

This spring’s request will include a multi-year plan to reduce class sizes and hire more teachers. The levy request will also include purchasing curriculum materials and textbooks for students.

Heart disease is our country's NUMBER ONE KILLER. Please review the information sent home with your child.

Two of our many amazing staff members have been recognized recently with special awards. The Coeur d'Alene Educational Partnership (CEP) surprised second grade teacher Chris Inlow December 4th. CEP chose her as this month's Invest, Inspire, and Innovate Award Recipient for certified staff. On the morning of December 5th, Superintendent Matt Handelman named Monica Annis-Hilliard as Classified Employee of the Month. Ms. Annis-Hilliard leads science exploratory classes in grades K-2 and keyboarding classes in grades 3-5. Congrats, Mrs. Inlow and Ms. Annis-Hilliard! We are lucky to have you here at Ramsey Magnet School of Science!

ANOTHER Big Thank You! 
“How beautiful a day can be when kindness touches it” (George Elliston). On the morning of December 1st, Office Depot/Office Max presented boxes upon boxes of school supplies to Ramsey Magnet School of Science through their “A Day Made Better” program. Their foundation recognizes that teachers often spend their own money on school supplies, and as such, they donated a myriad of essential items for classroom and school use, from pencils and paper to glue and post-it dispensers. What a joy! We thank Office Depot/Office Max for their generosity and thoughtfulness. They certainly made our day better!
