Kamiah levy: ensure a quality education

Leah Kludt, Kamiah

Our kids are worth whatever it takes. I am a very concerned parent devastated by the current situation of the school system here in Kamiah. Many rumors exist about the upcoming levy we must pass to offset the terrible deficit our school faces due to underfunding at the state level. The future of our school depends on it.

The other communities in our area have bravely pulled together to value education and support the much needed programs that give our children experiences and opportunities they wouldn’t have otherwise. In our town, almost all of the opportunities come from the school. The school is the hub of a small community. It is what brings young families in and keeps the town alive and thriving. I believe if we pull together as a community and decide to support our school we can hope for a brighter future. I fear that if we don’t start now — ask questions, and get educated about the devastating state of our school —the future will look very bleak indeed. I have seen this town pull together for things deemed important - and now it is time to rally around our school. I know that although our town is small — it can be mighty! Let’s stand together, get involved and invest in our future! Take action! Be a part of saving our school! Living in a small town should not come at the price of a quality education. I believe our school has been able to continue to provide this — only because of our excellent experienced staff. We are at bare bones now.... and there is nothing else to cut. Please take time to put the rumors to rest - and learn how and why our school is in trouble. Choose to stand up and ensure that our school provides a quality education — because the future of Kamiah depends on it. Please voice that our kids are worth whatever it takes! Get the facts and make an educated yes vote. Let’s keep Kamiah on the map — proud, strong, and a force to be reckoned with! Go Kubs!
