WBCH offers this space to area school superintendents to highlight news in their districts. This posting is from Maple Valley Superintendent Michelle Falcon.
“It is official. We have been granted nearly $300,000 to complete the air conditioning at the elementary buildings this summer.
With the cooperation of our union leadership, board, and administration, we were able to acquire a year round school grant by agreeing to a year round calendar for our Pathways High School.
This was a competitive grant which only certain districts met the qualifications. The state set aside $1.5 million dollars to award schools who submitted a complete and quality grant.
There is so much to be grateful for at Maple Valley Schools. As we know climate controlled classrooms make a positive difference in our learning environment.
