Our current heating system is showing signs of distress. In this winter alone, it has failed eight times, leaving students and staff shivering in chilly classrooms. As the large building struggles to regain warmth, some classrooms have experienced temperatures as low as 57°F during the winter. Unfortunately, the cost of replacing the system far exceeds our available building funds. We face a critical challenge: how to maintain a comfortable learning environment without compromising other essential needs.

Schools are becoming a prime target for cybercriminals who want to steal data, extort money, or disrupt education. Montana is not immune to this threat. The number of phishing links to Montana school district employees that made it through email filters and security tools increased a staggering 1,100% last year. Each of these emails come with the potential of an attack that can cost a school district time, money, and resources. West Valley Technology Levy will be utilized to help protect student data and privacy through cybersecurity subscriptions and personnel. Help support the school’s efforts to safeguard the digital learning environment for students and staff.

Student aides provide targeted assistance to students, ensuring that gaps in learning are bridged. Their guidance prepares students not only for high school, but also for future endeavors in the workforce. Small group learning for struggling students has significantly decreased over the past school year due to budget limitations resulting in lost support staff positions.

As mandated by the state, West Valley School District conducts benchmark testing three times a year and administers standardized tests annually. However, there’s a significant hurdle: the lack of funding for a benchmark testing platform. Unlike the past, when paper-and-pencil assessments sufficed, today’s testing landscape is exclusively computer based. Unfortunately, West Valley receives no financial support to provide the necessary devices for students to complete these assessments. Let’s bridge this gap and empower our students with the tools they need for successful testing in the digital age.

West Valley is required to complete state benchmark and standardized testing. The cost of the platform is covered for state standardized testing, but not for benchmark testing. There is no paper option for the test, but funding is not provided for devices to complete these assessments.
