The Centralia Elementary School District Board of Trustees voted unanimously on Tuesday, August 9, 2016 to place a $49 million bond measure, Measure N, on the November ballot to upgrade classrooms and labs in order to keep pace with technology and repair aging facilities to meet modern safety standards.

If passed by local voters, funding from Measure N would go towards improvements at the eight schools in the Centralia School District, which has been serving local students since 1875.

Board President Connor Traut stated, “Most Centralia schools were built more than 50 years ago and require extensive repairs and upgrades so they can continue to serve our community well for decades to come.  Students really need modern science labs and access to technology to succeed in this changing world. Measure N is essential for our students’ continued success.”

“Every penny from Measure N would benefit our neighborhood schools,” said Superintendent Norma Martinez. She added, “since the State is no longer funding school facilities improvements, we needed to seek out a local solution. If we want our students to have the same opportunities as others in the region to succeed in college and career, we need to improve student access to today’s technologies and provide them with a solid background in science, math and technology. I am confident that Measure N will allow us to address identified needs in our schools so we can continue to focus on educating our children for successful futures.”  For more, please see the attached press release.

Dear Parents/Guardians:

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, Cabinet, staff and myself, I welcome our new and returning families to the start of what promises to be another exciting year of learning in the Centralia Elementary School District.   As I begin my second year as your superintendent, I wish to share my appreciation for your tremendous support and belief in the great work that happens in each of our schools. 

 

As we prepare to embark on a new academic year, it is important that we pause to reflect back on the many notable moments of accomplishment achieved by Centralia School District staff and students in the 2015-16 school year.
