Students at Augusta Elementary School took part in a manners lunch on Monday, Nov. 20.

Dressed nicely and with the atmosphere in the Augusta Elementary cafeteria featuring dimmed lighting with light music playing in the background, the students practiced proper table etiquette while enjoying their turkey lunch with all of the fixings.

The Augusta Elementary students have been in the process of learning proper table etiquette over the last several days leading up to the manners lunch. They were not allowed to begin eating until everyone at the table was served.

Augusta Elementary Principal Mary Robertson also gave a demonstration on what not to do at the dinner table.

In the Aug. 2, 2016 election, voters passed a $15 million zero tax-rate increase bond issue proposed by the School District of Washington.

The majority of the issue was about moving and refinancing existing lease debt into bond debt. Voter approval meant revenue that was servicing the $13.66 million lease ($1.5 million in annual payments paid from the Capital Projects fund) could be shifted to the general fund for operations. Of the $15 million proposed in the bond issue, $13.66 million of it was not new debt at all, but simply moving of payments from one fund to another.

Then, additionally, the balance of the bond issue (approximately $1.34 million) would be used to finance roof replacements, safety and security upgrades, along with some minor classroom renovation. Simple, basic, and responsible.

“We sincerely appreciate the community’s support of the district,” said School District of Washington Superintendent Dr. Lori VanLeer.

With the election a little over a year ago, the School District of Washington already has delivered on many of those improvement projects.

Prioritized Captial Needs

Completed – Replace roof sections at Labadie Elementary.

Completed – Restore metal roof at Washington Middle School.

Completed – Outside building repairs (tuck point, caulk, water proof paint) at Augusta Elementary.

Completed – Restore roof section at Augusta Elementary.

Completed – Roof construction above boiler room at Washington West Elementary.

Completed- Replace rear doors and 11 original windows at Washington Middle School.

Completed – HVAC replacement and replaced air conditioning unit in the gymnasium at Washington Middle School.

Completed – Door replacement on the north side of the building, tuck point and seal coat at Marthasville Elementary.

Completed – Masonry repair, spot tuck point and chimney repair at the District Office on Locust Street.

Completed – Masonry tuck point and seal coating to the building and clean and seal concrete walls at Four Rivers Career Center.

Pending (scheduled for completion) – Lagoon renovations by 2021 at Campbellton Elementary.

Safety and Security

Access controls have been installed on approximately 50 doors throughout the School District of Washington.

A total of 79 security cameras have been upgraded throughout the School District of Washington, including the installation of 18 new cameras.

Academic Space Improvements

With East Central College vacating building space at Four Rivers Career Center, a new space, known as the Confluence room, was created to accommodate the Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) program.

The Confluence is a workspace assigned for students to fast forward into their future and fully immerse in a professional culture, solve real world problems and use industry standard tools.

Debt Restructuring

Also completed as promised is the converting of lease payments to the debt service fund by means of general obligation bonds to secure operational funding to maintain education services.

See the photos below of some of the completed projects within the School District of Washington as a result of voters passing the zero tax-rate bond issue in August of 2016.
