Good stewards in District 201

November 26, 2013 

In response to the article, "Belleville District 201 moves to restructure debt," I feel that is a wise thing for the school board to do. It is obvious that all high schools are hurting financially. District 201 has been $10 million in debt for a while.

As a student in District 201, I am affected by the decisions of the school board and I enjoy when the board makes changes that better the school. I appreciate that board members are considering the taxpayers by limiting the tax levy. As well as they are considering the students by discussing the purchase of a new driver's education vehicle.

Although I am a senior, I want the school to be as amazing for future students as it was for me. If the school purchases a new vehicle. I think it will make the driver's education students very pleased.

I am appreciative of the school board members and what they do for District 201.
