Scott Markovich - School District update

Scott Markovich - School district update

Scott Markovich gave us an update on what’s up on the mountain.
 
It’s been a bit of a tough year, and Scott gave us a look at our upcoming election for the school board, and worked to clear a bit of confusion in the process. Turns out there are 3 districts in the District, Crestline, Lake Arrowhead and Running Springs. There will be people on the ballot from each district, and everyone gets to vote for all districts. Interesting!
 
Scott reviewed programs that have been underway, mandates from the State and Federal governments and discussed a few of the shifts in public education. One example is the fall off in students interested in football!
 
Technology moves quickly – and is leading a big shift in educating. The school is declining enrollment at all levels, one reason is competition from Charter and Christian schools and home-schooling. Also, there are just not as many kids.
 
They are working on ways to improve competitively, and a working on a “branding program.”
 
Many challenges in the education business!
