Letters to the Editor for April 1, 2014

Students can confide in school staff I am writing in response to the March 25, article titled “District clarifies boundaries between students, staff.” We appreciate the work done by the Camas-Washougal Post-Record to keep the community informed of work being done in the school district. The Washougal School District has been engaged in a major update of every school board policy, bringing all 298 of them into compliance with new laws, legal guidance, and renumbering them to match those in use in other districts. We are working with the Washington State School Director’s Association to review all policies, and our Board of Directors is adopting policies as recommended by WSSDA.

City Council should support I-502 in Camas The demand for marijuana is spinning off enormous profits for drug cartels, for gangs, and for illegal dealers. Allowing regulated marijuana sales in Camas would allow us to refocus limited city resources on more important priorities and would redirect millions of dollars that are currently flowing to criminal organizations each year to legitimate businesses and provide a source of additional revenue for Camas.

Chamber supports school levies The Camas-Washougal Chamber of Commerce is in support of the two Washougal School District replacement levies that will be up for vote on Feb. 11. These are not new taxes. These levies will replace the funding of the maintenance and operations levy and technology levy expiring in 2014. The state covers about 80 percent of funding needed for schools and these levies will bridge the gap to cover the other 20 percent.

I am proud of the quality education that my two children received from Washougal public schools. Without hesitation I will support the M&O and technology levies. These dollars will be directly used to support campus security, student health, performing arts, sports teams, technology, facility maintenance and community education.

Quality public education benefits all The dust has settled since the November election and as we head into a new year, I am thankful to the citizens of Camas who voted for me. Although I didn’t win a director seat on the Camas School Board, I did appreciate the opportunity to seek the position representing the Camas community. My husband Ryan has been so supportive and patient and our three daughters have learned so much from my experience including the notion that in life we do the right thing, even if it is the hard thing.
