District news

Thank you, Arlington voters!
From Dr. Chrys Sweeting, Superintendent, Arlington Public Schools
Thank you to everyone who voted in the Feb. 11 Special Election. Arlington Public Schools' EP&O and Capital Levies appear to be passing at this point. Your continued support of our students, staff, and schools is greatly Thank youappreciated and will allow our district to continue providing staffing and services at their current level, while enhancing our learning spaces.

At this time, it appears that the Post Middle School Bond has not reached the 60% approval needed to pass. We are disappointed in this result, and will continue to work to find ways to meet the facility needs of our Post students.
