No students at Gilbert public elementary schools will go without a bright holiday season this year thanks to the efforts of the Gilbert Fire and Rescue Department.
In the past, exceeding on the AIMS testing meant that Arizona high school students could qualify for free tuition at one of the three Arizona universities. Now that the scholarship has been slashed by about three-fourths the original amount, some East Valley high schools are supplying students with their own incentives to encourage high test scores.
So the Great Apple Controversy is over.
A potential impediment to Apple developing a facility in Mesa was cleared on Monday night after the Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board agreed to sign a letter of no objection to allow for the re-zoning of the property for tax purposes.
The deal that would bring Apple to Mesa has hit a snag due to a decision by the Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board to hold off on an agreement that would provide incentives to the company and provide the district millions in tax revenue.
I like prayer. I often pray, at least once a day, likely more. Our family prays each day at dinner, as we have for generations. We’ve discussed prayer over the years, that prayer is at least as powerful for those who pray as for those who are the subjects of prayer, that prayer helps us cope with those difficult times and celebrate the beauty in our lives.
Mesa police Sgt. Rob Scantlebury and his squad spend most of their time in plain clothes, quietly working cases involving street drug dealers, prostitutes and thieves.
“Buy this stock. Based upon conservative talk radio in northern California where they are peeing in their pants over Obamacare, I recommend buying the company that manufactures ‘Depends.’”
I am a college senior at the top of my class preparing to start a career in Elementary & Special Education and am extremely disappointed in Gilbert’s disinterest in improving the quality of its school system. Teacher pay in the Gilbert Public Schools has been frozen for years and stripping funding from them at this juncture will only ensure that this trend continues!
Amid cannon fire, flyovers and parachutists, the Higley Unified School District honored many veterans during its Veterans Day celebration on Nov. 8 — one of several events in the East Valley to recognize those who have served.
Education funding measures in the Chandler Unified and Higley Unified School Districts hold slim leads in the latest results from Tuesday's elections, with thousands of ballots still expected to be counted.
Gilbert School Board President Stacy Burk recently made a proposal sure to generate discussion. On a Facebook site, “Gilbert Schools Rabid Fringe,” she’s floating the following:
A series of Veterans Day events meant to honor those who have served in the armed forces are scheduled to occur in Gilbert and Mesa between Nov. 7 and Nov. 9.
Unofficial voting results show school districts that teach students from Chandler having success with their efforts to pass an override. The districts located in the other municipalities, however, are facing much tougher sledding.
On Nov. 5, voters across the East Valley will vote on several items concerning additional city- and school-district funding that would add millions of dollars to continue funding education efforts or to continue city and school-district improvements.
“Gilbert Public Schools portion of my property tax bill is 72 percent of the total bill. NO OVERRIDE. They get enough of my money already.”
I support the Gilbert Public Schools override. I also respect those who oppose it. Many are friends and neighbors and will remain so long after this election is over.
I’ve heard the most potent arguments in favor of the tax increase known as the “override,” and, as a conservative, I’m not convinced.
For the second time this year, the owners of a proposed mental health facility in Gilbert have opted to withdraw from its proposed location in the midst of vocal public opposition.
Last November the voters of Gilbert School District resoundingly defeated the override. This year, the GPS board has voted to give raises, increase the primary property tax rate, and is now asking for another tax increase, at a taxpayer cost of $328,000.
Thousands of people are expected to attend this Sunday’s Walk Now for Autism Speaks event to raise funds for the organization while providing more information about an oft-misunderstood disorder.
To parents and residents living within the Gilbert Public Schools geographic area:
In response to Mr. Chiazza’s recent letter to the editor (Tribune, Oct. 20, evtnow.com/5z0), I, too, find it quite disturbing that radicals are putting up signs saying “Destroy Public Education.” However, the group that placed these signs are not those who oppose the override. They were placed by people who want the property tax override to pass. They hoped that their deception would cause voters to jump to an inaccurate conclusion, just as Mr. Chiazza did.
To be named a Blue Ribbon School is the highest achievement an elementary, middle or high school can achieve.
The City of Gilbert has an override vote for public education coming up in November. It is quite disturbing that radicals again are putting up signs saying “Destroy Public Education”. Gilbert used to have a very good reputation that citizens of Gilbert were quite proud of. As a 25-year resident I am very disturbed that these radicals that are now in public offices are going to ruin the once outstanding reputation that Gilbert once had.
