Oak Harbor students need competitive schools | Letters

Editor,

It is important that the voters of Oak Harbor step forward and vote yes to support the Oak Harbor School District Levy. The students of today are growing up in a world that is vastly different from just a few years ago. Today’s graduates will enter a tremendously competitive world that is bound by 21st century technology.

Regardless of their path — four year college, trade school, the military or the work force — they will be matched against highly qualified individuals. We, the citizens of Oak Harbor, should see it as a privilege to provide these students with the necessary tools to be successful now and in the future.

They need computers that are equipped with up-to-date software, rigorous advanced placement classes, career and technology training courses and an overall school environment that is safe. As a school board member I see the needs of the district every day. But more importantly, as a mom of a first, third and fifth grader, I see the needs of the children. Please vote yes for schools.

Christine Abbott
Oak Harbor School Board Member
