Super Chat

The June edition of the "Super Chat" podcast is now online at www.southwestschools.org/podcast.

In this episode, Superintendent John Hamstra explains the five-year forecast, and the impact it has on the financial future of the school district.

Mr. Hamstra also puts a wrap on the 2018-2019 school year, where 242 students became new graduates of William Henry Harrison High School.  This class earned over $600,000 in scholarship dollars and $100,000 in tuition savings through the College Credit Plus program.  140 students plan to attend a two-year, or four-year college or university, 87 will be entering the workforce, and 15 have enlisted in the military.

Finally, Mr. Hamstra provides the monthly in-depth update on the current status of the facilities project.  The roofing and masonry work has begun on the exterior facade of the high school.  Additionally, the third Town Hall Meeting is coming up on June 26 at 7:00 PM in the Martin Marietta Theater at the Activity Center.  This meeting will update the community on the status of the project and answer any questions from stakeholders.
