3A and 3B

Dear Parents,

As many of you already know, we have a bond and mill levy proposed on the ballot this November.
I fully support the passage of the Bond and Mill Levy. Excel Academy, along with the other Charter Schools in our district will receive 10% of the funds. 

The $535 million bond funding would enable:
  • Improvements, updates, and repairs for 110 schools including updated technology, lab space, and furnishings
  • Renovations/additions at 45 schools and facilities including more classroom space
  • 4 replacement and 3 new elementary schools
  • Safety and security upgrades
  • All neighborhood, option, and charter schools benefit
The $33 million mill levy override funding would enable:
  • Increased per student funding for programs suited to individual schools like STEM, career/tech, or arts/music
  • Transparent and competitive teacher compensation to ensure our ability to attract and retain the best teachers
  • Coverage of any funding gaps if the state reduces funding
  • Safety and security improvements, including enhanced mental health services such as school counselors and intervention programming
  • All neighborhood, option, and charter schools benefit

To understand how Excel Academy would use the extra funding please click on the following link:
