The Kuna School Board met Tuesday February 12 to discuss their upcoming meeting with the City of Kuna, the McREL Conference, district finances, and updates on projects for Facilities and Maintenance. “I think one of our main goals should be to find ways to save the tax payers money,” said Trustee Jim Ford.
Members of the Board discussed the possibility of identifying which programs, services and equipment overlapped with the city to see if they could save the tax payers money. Some ideas discussed were youth recreation programs, maintenance equipment and legal services, but decided they needed to investigate further as to which areas might cause problems. No definite decisions were made at this time.
Superintendent Jay Hummel reported on the McREL National Summit for Innovative Education Conference that was held the first week of February. The summit presented some of the biggest issues in education across the country. One of the main events he mentioned was a discussion between two professionals, one representing the need to have a national curriculum and teach more to the tests to raise test scores, the other representing the need to have more independent flexible curriculum chosen by each district.
“Here in the Kuna School District we encourage a more flexible approach,” said Hummel. “We don’t want a one size fits all approach.”
