HOME OF THE TIGERS
An enormous thank you to the voters of Hayden School District for supporting our Mill Levy Override, (MLO). We appreciate your trust and will continue to earn it!
October came and went quickly. We ended the first quarter and had parent/teacher conferences with a strong turn out at both campuses. All staff has worked hard for the benefit of our students. This starts with getting them to school safely, making sure the school is clean and safe, providing a nutritious meal, and making sure they are getting the support they need through instruction in the classroom. This staff is an incredible group of individuals who put their love and passion into the work they do. I can’t thank them enough for all they do on a daily basis.
The financial audit that closes the 2017-18 school year (July 1 – June 30) was completed this month. It will take the auditors a few weeks to compile all the information and complete the final report. As of now, all indications are that the fund balance has increased and our ratios are a little low but we are within an acceptable range. The final report will be released toward the end of December and will be posted on the website.
The State of the District Report was compiled to provide a perspective on each department in the school district and to provide information for aligning budget resources, setting outcomes, and identifying future needs. The report is broken down into two main areas: Academic and Operational. The Academic components include performance levels based on data, teachers, and school goals. The Operational components include finance, food services, maintenance, transportation, technology, and the BEST/Bond building. The report is available on the district website and by clicking here.
The new PK-12 Building continues to draw excitement. We are working on the schematic design and aligning our needs to the requirements submitted through the BEST grant that provides $38.9 million of the budget to compliment the $22.3 million from the local bond. We continue to seek community involvement. The next community meeting is December 4th starting at 6:00. Dinner will be provided.
The district calendar can be downloaded to your phone so you don’t miss any events. A couple key events for November are the Booster Club Gala on November 10th, Veteran’s Day Celebration on November 12th, and the middle school boys basketball games.
