On behalf of the Bremerton School District Board of Directors, staff, students and families, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the community for their support for the renewal of our multi-year School Support Levy.
Even though Bremerton continues to be celebrated across our state and nationally for various innovative programs we have created, the Board and I understand that voters have to make difficult financial decisions for this to happen.
Fortunately, our community strongly believes in education. Because of this, we will continue to offer programs that benefit our students like free full-day kindergarten for every student, Spanish Immersion programs, preschool – 8th grade STEM Academy, Montessori, 6th-12th grade AVID and robust secondary Advanced Placement programs. While these may not be high priorities to some voters, these opportunities provide our students with an excellent foundation to excel.
We have highly skilled professionals who will deliver an education that is established through positive relationships with our students that is rigorous and relevant. Our schools and grounds are well maintained, our transportation fleet is safe and efficient, and we provide healthy snacks and meals. We are proud of our city and happy to be an integral part of it.
We will continue to find ways to promote innovation while continuing to be responsible stewards of our taxpayer’s valuable contributions and pledge to work with state legislators to fully fund education as our paramount duty.
Again, thank you for supporting the students and families in the Bremerton School District and for being our partners in striving for excellence in all kids.
Dr. Aaron Leavell
