On behalf of the Sunnyside School District’s students, staff and Board of Directors, I would like to thank our voters for their support in approving the school bond to construct a new Washington Elementary School and make safety upgrades at other schools in our district.
Our community has a long history of supporting our public schools, and we are fortunate to see that support continued with the latest bond approval.
We recognize and appreciate the investment you have made to provide our students and staff with schools and facilities that are modern and safe, all while maintaining the second lowest school tax rate in Yakima County.
We will continue to honor your commitment by acting as good stewards of the tax revenue you provide to support our schools.
As many of you know, our school district has seen incredible success in more than doubling our graduation rate since 2007. This achievement is a direct reflection of the collective commitment our schools and community have made to support education in the Sunnyside School District.
Thank you for your continued support of our vision of success for every student. Your support fuels our success!
/s/ Dr. Richard Cole, Superintendent of Sunnyside Schools
