Northshore School District sets public forums on funding issues
The community is invited to attend one of several forums to learn about the educational funding issues facing the state and their impact on the Northshore School District. The forums will be held from 7-9 p.m. Jan. 29 at the Woodinville High School library; Feb. 3 at the Skyview Junior High library; and Feb. 5 at the Inglemoor High School library.
Primary issues impacting K-12 funding include overall reduced state funding, reduced local levy funds, and additional state mandates with no funding. There are only a limited number of ways a school district can reduce its expenses before these cuts impact the classroom, district officials said. They encourage residents to learn how the school district plans to prepare for these funding reductions and to share reactions, thoughts, and ideas.
