Info Needed for Spring Senior Athlete Celebration

Attention families of Seniors planning to compete in collegiate athletics:

As of 2019, the NCAA process now allows signings for most sports on almost any day of the year. As a result of the greatly expanded dates as well as wanting to celebrate all of our college participants we will hold one large-scale signing opportunity on the evening of May 21st at 6:00 p.m. in the Main Gym that recognizes all of our athletes who will be continuing on to compete in athletics at the collegiate level regardless of division or receipt of athletic aid. In the past we only recognized official NLI signings which excluded many of our athletes competing at the Division III level and this allows us to celebrate all of our Senior Athletes in one ceremony. Individual athletes and/or their Eastview team are encouraged to celebrate all collegiate signings in their own ways, but we will hold our school-wide signing ceremony at our Spring Senior Athlete Celebration in May along with our all-school athletic department award winners. Please let us know in the Athletic Office if you need assistance with any paperwork etc.

In order to both collect information for our ceremony in May, as well as to be able to share information with the local media, please have your athlete fill out the brief survey at this link: https://forms.gle/V2haN6AR7tjsKT2i6 Thanks and congrats on your commitment to participate in collegiate athletics!

District 196 Moving Forward with May 9 Bond Referendum Election: Two-Question Special Election Addresses District’s Facilities and Equipment Needs

District 196 School Board on Monday unanimously approved a resolution calling for a two-question bond referendum election on May 9, 2023, to address the district’s facilities and equipment needs for the next 10 years and beyond.

That was the recommendation of the administration and members of a Facilities and Equipment Steering Committee that conducted a comprehensive review of the district’s facilities and equipment needs over the last year and a half. The committee developed a facilities master plan and recommended the first phase of improvements to address needs in the areas of safety, security and supervision; space for growth, and providing students and families a more consistent experience in facilities across the district.

The proposed improvements were presented as preliminary recommendations at the Nov. 14 School Board meeting. They were then presented for public input during three nights of focus group dialogues in November, and online via a form on the district website. Learn more.

Do you need fee assistance?

Fee assistance is available for District 196 residents. Apply online or call 651-423-7920.
