Galesburg Augusta Community Schools is stewarding the long-term value and safety of the facilities, as part of the comprehensive program offerings that help engage students. It has always been a collaborative effort and investment by all stakeholders in the school and community.
While educators work continuously to improve standardized test scores, it is helpful to remember that proficiency scores are significantly different from the hard skills we teach students that transfer to real world settings. The cut scores for standardized testing are much more variable than the meat and potatoes curriculum that builds lifelong literacy skills. Our G-A students are preparing for a successful future on many fronts.
*** 2021 Bond Proposal *** Q: Does G-A still have one of the lowest millage rates compared to other local districts? A: Yes. At 5.5 mills we are second to the bottom. With an increase to 6.7 mills, we will still be in the bottom third for the number of mills levied.
Mark your calendars! Vote November 2nd. https://vimeo.com/591145813/d91067b325
Galesburg Augusta Community Schools works collaboratively with other districts to add value to our educational programs. One excellent example is the new Career Technical Center being designed by the KRESA team.
Recently I was asked why we need space at the Primary School when student enrollment overall in the district has gone down. As Mr. Sportel and I have previously shared, we have added teachers to reduce class sizes, added more curricular opportunities, and added more intervention staff. In addition, these are the facts around the student enrollment numbers at the Primary School: K-4 enrollment in 2016 was 349 students. K-4 enrolled in 2019 (pre-pandemic) was 380 students. In addition, we currently have 75 preschoolers. Families are choosing G-A, and to do our best by the students entrusted to us, these facilities matter! - Ms. Somers
