Opinion

Thank you citizens

The Mercer Island School Board wishes to express its deep appreciation to the citizens of Mercer Island for their overwhelming approval of the construction Bond, as well the Maintenance and Operations Levy. We are grateful for the efforts of those individuals working with the Committee for Mercer Island Public Schools (CMIPS), and others, who volunteered their time and effort to disseminate information about the proposal. The facilities proposal was the product of years of planning, and was made possible only through the efforts of Superintendent Plano and his team, as well as through extensive and continuing public participation. We are awed by the confidence placed in us, and will strive to validate that confidence, by ensuring the facilities are constructed with high quality, on time, and within budget. We will work with the City to address land use, design, and traffic issues. We anticipate the new facilities, together with our present thr ee newly right-sized elementary schools, will make for a quality educational experience for our students. We are overwhelmed with the great value this community continues to place on the excellence of public education.
