Open letter to the Astoria community: On behalf of the Astoria School District’s board, students, families and staff, I would like to thank district residents for displaying their support of our children and our schools. I am truly excited about the opportunity for growth, the future of Astoria School District, and the impact of the passing of our 2018 school bond.
The trust that our voters have placed in us is tremendous. We now have the opportunity and obligation to improve the facilities that will be used to educate our students for years to come. We are excited about the impact of safety and security improvements, modern and upgraded classrooms, expanded vocational and technical education accessibility, and facility infrastructure improvements.
As we move forward with project development, the district will work diligently to continue communication on every phase of our school improvements. An independent citizen bond oversight committee will be established to oversee the use of the bond funds.
It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of the Astoria School District, and to be a part of a team that comes together in support of our children, our schools and our community. Thank you again for your vote of support.
Superintendent, Astoria School District
