you may be aware by now, our community did not approve the referendum to build
a new Jefferson Early Childhood Center. However, creating a 21st
Century learning environment that meets the needs of the children at Jefferson
will remain a priority for District 200 leadership.
with the staff at Jefferson, Superintendent Dr. Brian Harris and Board
President Rosemary Swanson explained that one of the District's top
priorities will be to engage the
community in further conversations about an acceptable solution to
Jefferson to meet the unique needs of the children that attend the
new Board of Education will also need to make plans to address all of
the capital needs that
have been identified at all 20 schools across the district.
the Board of Education election, Barbara Intihar and Joann Coghill were re-elected to new
four-year terms and will rejoin Rosemary Swanson, Jim Vroman, and Jim
Gambaiani. We will welcome two new board members, Jim Mathieson and Brad
Paulsen, who will take their seats in May.
District 200 would like to thank all of the volunteers who worked hard on behalf of the
Jefferson Referendum and appreciate the support. We welcome
feedback, thoughts or comments regarding our future facility needs for
