The Sequim City Council heard input from students, citizens, and the Sequim School District, before adopting a resolution that supports the Sequim School District’s Improvement and Replacement Plan at the January 11, 2016 City Council Meeting. The Sequim City Council previously passed a resolution supporting the bond in the November 2015 election. The bond measure failed county-wide with a 59.5% voter approval, but it did pass by voters within the Sequim city limits.
The resolution cites the importance of maintaining high economic standards and providing quality education to Sequim’s children to provide for Sequim’s future. It refers to the City’s adopted Economic Development Core Values, and the importance of high quality education in remaining competitive and attracting desired professionals such as physicians, nurses, therapists, engineers, and law enforcement officers to the City.
“This is an important issue for the entire Sequim community,” said Mayor Dennis Smith. “We heard from students about the high quality of teachers and staff at the Sequim schools, they deserve facilities that will support the highest level of education and give them the best opportunity for success.”
