We support the Centralia schools levy vote on Aug 4th

Centralia Community Foundation began supporting the Centralia School District in early 2018 and the progress we have seen is very positive.

But it’s more than just progress for our kids; there are also great benefits that flow from investing in education. We know that quality education is crucial for job opportunity growth and community renewal.

We support the Centralia schools levy because:

  • It supports activities that get kids interacting and socially involved in school; field trips for grade school classes, high school after school clubs such as gaming and esports, theatre group, knowledge bowl, and dozens of introductory and competitive sports.
  • Without the local levy support there will be little or no budget for advancing and updating Centralia schools in-classroom computers and technology. Learning digital life skills is essential for most future career paths and not having these updates puts our kids behind.
  • A failed levy vote cuts teachers, reduces student schedule options, and means we will lose some of our advanced classes at Centralia middle and high school that challenge our most studious kids. A successful levy will help us continue advanced classes and add accredited College in the Classroom classes at no cost to student families and keep our high achievers in our own schools.
  • Our new District Superintendent, Dr. Lisa Grant, has already made significant changes in creating a community accessible school district. She is currently setting up the Citizen’s Advisory Committee and Budget Task Force, giving us confidence in the transparency and community collaboration she has pledged to lead.

We hope you will join us and VOTE YES for Centralia Schools.

Today the Lewis County Health Department sent out its recommendation that all Lewis County Schools start the year with only distance learning due to Covid-19. Regardless of whether schools are open in the classroom or online this Fall, community-supported levy funding is essential for education. Superintendent Dr. Lisa Grant has announced a plan that teachers will conduct remote learning instruction from school buildings. Therefore, we need the support of expanding technology to ensure classes are monitored and effective and that all students have access to classes. Remote learning is only a temporary mandate and as Covid-19 expertise advances, the school district will be collaborating with the Lewis County Health and Social Service staff and surrounding districts monthly to analyze the ability
to return students to the classroom. The current August 4th levy ballot will support school programs from January 2021 through December 2022.
