School important to community

Published 10:52 am Sunday, October 10, 2010

We are strongly in favor of the school referendum for our Austin Public Schools that will be on the ballot November 2. Education of our children is a high priority. We can “Vote Yes” and our school taxes will not be raised.

When people are looking at a community and deciding where they want to live, the education of their children is high on their list. We are very blessed to have excellent teachers, administration, staff, buildings and equipment. We need to continue this tradition of excellence for our students.

How fun it is to talk about our schools to people checking out Austin! Our students are receiving a great education that is helping them to go out and make the world a better place. We want to be able to move forward with this high quality education.

Our three daughters all graduated from the Austin School System and we are very thankful for the strong educational background that they received. We are proud to live in a community where education is highly valued.

Please get out and “Vote Yes” for the school referendum on November 2. By voting yes, our current funding will stay in place and our school taxes will not be raised. Let’s all be involved in continuing to ensure excellence in our education system. It is a wise investment in our future.
