As you know, the Rome community successfully passed the 2019-2020 school budget this past week with a 74% approval rate. On behalf of all of the students and staff of the Rome City School District, I want to thank you all for your support. We are very appreciative to have a community that values education and wants the best for their children. The district is dedicated to ensuring that our students are receiving the very best instruction possible with the most appropriate resources available for learning. Given the challenges that our district and the community faced throughout this budget season, the support of a successful budget is greatly appreciated. While the fight is not over with regard to equitable funding of education, we have taken one giant step forward to ensuring that our future with have more stability with both our advocacy and passage of this budget. Even with the unfortunate reality of needing to make reductions, the core of our programming remains untouched and our students will still receive the quality instruction and opportunities that our community expects. All of these efforts are made possible because of the support of our community. When you work in a community and environment that is support of children and growth, it makes the entire system better. We appreciate our community and once again, on behalf of our children and staff, THANK YOU for your support!!
