What I like about the district is the academic opportunities and the teachers. They are always willing to help. But the district is low o funding and putting the money towards some things I find unnecessary for our education. Because of this, they are also giving opportunities that were originally available to all students now only available for student with free and reduced lunch. For example, they used to pay for college courses and textbooks if you went to college off campus. That now is only available to students with the free and reduced lunch. They are able to take college classes at college, while others can't. That should remain an option open for all students, as it is a great opportunity.

I would like to see my school district care more about the kids than the money. While I understand that it takes a lot of money to fund thousands of people's income, I feel like the most import role a school district can play is in the upbringing of its students. As students we have no say in what works best with us. Recently the high schools had a bell schedule change that made it harder for us to get help from our teachers. There used to be a period of time before lunch that student could either go in for or the teacher could request a student. Now, that time is before school. This makes it harder for students who ride the bus to get a full thirty minutes of student-teacher help.
What I do like about my district is the willingness they have to support the kids who do not have proper supplies for school. There are options for kids to get reduced lunches or have fee waivers. A lot of times it allows them to feel like they have a future.
The staff all really care about their students and are super invested. Our classes are preparing us for college and we are even able to start taking college courses through our schools for free!
