Quotes of the Day (We are Not Alone #17)

Chetek School District begins considering an operating referendum.

“What we heard loud and clear from the community was that we want everything and more for our kids…Obviously, with our budget dwindling, we’re going to have to do something to meet the expectations of the community.”

Genie Jennings, President Chetek School District, Board of Education

“I think we have to do it. It’s not a debatable issue. The question is, ‘Is it going to be a community-wide effort with help from the board?’…I think the community will pay for what they perceive as quality, performance and value,…Doing more with less may actually happen, but to provide good services frugally, and to be competitive, we’re going to have to create more opportunities for students. That is the real focus.”

Ken Jost, Member Chetek School District, Board of Education
