Toledo School District to Host Community Meeting
TOLEDO January 12, 2017 - Toledo School District invites members of the public to a community meeting at 7 pm on January 23 to discuss student safety, student learning and energy efficiency projects that will appear on a bond measure in February. The meeting will be held at Toledo High School.
Kelley Wilson from Construction services Group and Ryan Swanson from Piper Jaffray will join Toledo School District Superintendent Chris Rust and Board Members Monique Norberg, Tom Lahmann, Bill Moore, and Denny Clark to help answer questions about how the bond proposal was created, what needs it will address and who was involved, as well as questions about cost. Because the high school was built more than 40 years ago, it requires substantial updates to ensure students and staff are in a safe environment that aligns with current academic requirements.
“We’re looking forward to answering questions,” said Rust. “We want the community to be fully informed about what they’re being asked to do in February.”
In addition to this community meeting, Rust is conducting building tours every Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the high school. He’s also available for house calls to explain the bond. Call 360.864.6325 to arrange a time.
The price of the bond is set at $14.2 million. It represents an estimates tax rate of $2.38/$1,000 assessed value. If the district passes the bond in 2017, the State will contribute another 8.2 million to the project.

“Have some faith in your body's amazing ability to heal,” says Trish M Ward, author of Why The Thoughts You Think Are As Important As The Supplements You Take.
There’s plenty of science to back up her claim, and her own return to radiant health offers encouragement to look beyond statistics.
Should You Prescribe Antibiotics For Ear Infections? That’s the common recommendation for children, but you might want to consider results of recent studies cited in the article by the Chris Kresser Institute. And there’s help for the pain, too.
Or you can try this sea salt in a sock remedy, with or without the antibiotics. It works! And no mess.
