Scott Markovich, Member of the RotWUSD gave a report on the school district.

 

Scott reports that we have been through a pretty challenging period – declining enrollment has been a problem, but it seems that the problem may be leveling out. The district has been able to maintain most programs including sports and vocational curriculum – which is helpful.

 

Scott spent a few minutes on school standards and measurements, and described how they relate to funding that is received from the state. Scott built a case supporting “Common Core” which he believes is working well.

 

Scott spent a few minutes on facilities and District economics, including the properties where schools have been closed, the building where the District offices are, and some land owned that they are working with the Parks and Rec district on.

 

Scott reports that for the most part, Rim Schools are in good shape – and he is very optimistic for the future.
