Community Meetings and SBRC decision.  
Thank you to everyone in the community that attended one of four community meetings to discuss the School Budget Review Committee and our current financial circumstances at Tri-Center.  I was able to visit with over 150 community members through this process.  I’m sure most community members have heard, the SBRC committee approved Tri-Center’s request for additional Modified Supplemental Amount for Fiscal-Year 2014.  This is very significant for our district.  The SBRC approval, along with reductions, and savings we are currently working on, will allow Tri-Center to regain financial health much more quickly than if our request had been denied.  Thank you to everyone on staff and in the community that contributed to this process.

SIAC committee.  
Thank you to the community and staff that attended our first School Improvement Advisory Committee meeting January 13th.  This group will have their next meeting Thursday, March 12th.  Please feel free to join the meeting and discuss school improvement at Tri-Center.  Contact Angie Huseman if you have questions about the SIAC meetings.

An elementary student recently gave me a bag of Cheetos on his way into school in the morning…This simple gesture reminded me how important it is to let people know you care.  Thank your teachers for the hard work they do if you have not done so recently; thank your students for recent success or perseverance, and thank your community for serving their school and area well.  As always, please email, call, or stop by any of the school offices if you have questions or concerns.

Dr. Tony Weers, Ed.D.
