Oak Harbor students need competitive schools | Letters

January 30, 2013 · Updated 3:40 PM


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
