First, they need to reach an agreement on a transpor- tation bill which will then pave the way for decisions on other items including the supplemental bud- get bill, taxes and bonding. The supplemental budget conference committee, which impacts educa- tion funding began meeting this week to review the bill and take testimony from various agencies. At this point, there is no pro- posal on the table to address a pupil-formula increase or special education cross-subsidy which would go a long way to alleviate the budget challenges facing most school districts. What we are fac- ing js some unpopular education EV-W Menus policy provisions, reporting requirements and unfunded man- dates which requires more time from staff and administration. If you haven't already been urging your local legislators to support education and refrain from enact- ing new mandates, now is the time to do so. Once again, the elections bill allowing the appointment of board members has hit a snag and does not seem to be moving in the House. The school board vacancy provision is included in both the House and Senate bills and unless there is movement, we may be forced to conduct costly special elections to fill vacant board mem- ber seats due to members moving from the district. Students of Excellence The 29th Annual Students of Excellence Banquet and Recognition Ceremony was held Wednesday, April 27, at the River's Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud. As a crowd of 550 gath- ered prior to the event, students, parents and teachers greeted one another and visited about spring activities, upcoming graduation and college plans. The evening was dedicated to honoring the top 140 high school seniors from 36 area high schools located in Region 7. The bon- orees were nominated by their school and received a plaque recognizing their accomplish- ment and included a certificate from Governor Dayton. The Eden Valley-Watkins School District was represented by Vanessa Aho, Abigail Flaschenriem, Faith Forcier, and Heidi Geislinger. I would like to commend our Student of Excellence award win- ners for their achievement in the classroom, arts and co-curricu- lar activities. They have delI on- strated a passion for learning and dedication to their future suc- cesses. I'm hopeful tha$ this rec- ognition will encourage our EV-W honorees to strive for excellence and continually work towards their goals and dreams. I wish you all the best as you continue your education and future endeavors.
