COLUMN: Looking back at school year as summer break looms ahead

Posted: Saturday, May 19, 2018 12:00 am

As we are nearing the end of another successful school year, I want to first thank our students, teachers, administrators and staff members for their hard work and commitment this year. In partnership with our families and community, we continue to provide our students with exceptional educational opportunities allowing them to succeed at the highest levels. I want to also congratulate our soon-to-be graduates and wish them the best of luck as they move on to various college and career opportunities. This year, the district has just under 900 graduates that have been accepted to over 115 different colleges and universities. We are extremely proud of these students and all of their accomplishments.

We are already preparing for the 2018-19 school year by diligently finalizing the proposed fiscal year 2019 budget. The Walton County Board of Education has continued to maintain sound fiscal management allowing us to provide our students with a quality education while efficiently spending taxpayer dollars and planning to lower the millage rate for the fifth consecutive year.
