Dear Jing Mei Families:

The district recently shared the results of its Demographic and Enrollment Study. This study examines enrollment, demographic trends, and what can be expected in years to come. The study also addresses declining enrollment — a challenge that is being felt within neighboring districts, throughout our state and across the country. The district is currently in the decision-making process of how to address this decline in enrollment while maintaining financial stability and continuing to offer a high-quality education for all students.

For these reasons, BSD has made a difficult decision to pause, which includes our school, Jing Mei Elementary School.

We know our families, students and staff will have questions, comments and/or concerns moving forward. Our community will have opportunities to provide input on plans being considered. In the days and weeks ahead, you will receive more information on how you can share your feedback. At the school level, we will also provide opportunities for our school community to share their thoughts.

Despite this change in building plans, choice schools remain an important part of our district. BSD and Jing Mei remain committed to offering an exceptional education to our students, offering new and innovative programs, and providing high-quality support services. Thank you for your patience and support as we work together to address challenges while ensuring positive outcomes for all of our students.

Sincerely,

Ms. Tan

Principal

主题/主题:景美小学重建时间表的变化 

亲爱的 景美 家庭:

贝尔维尤学区最近分享了我们学区的人口统计和入学研究的结果。这项研究考察了入学率、人口趋势以及未来几年的预期。该研究还解决了入学率下降的问题 – 这是邻近地区,我们州和全国各地都感受到的挑战。该学区目前正在决定如何解决入学率下降的问题,同时保持财务稳定并继续为所有学生提供高质量的教育。

基于这些原因,BSD做出了一个艰难的决定,暂停新校舍的建设,其中包括我们的学校景美小学。

我们知道我们的家人、学生和教职员工在前进的过程中会有问题、意见和/或疑虑。我们的社区将有机会就正在考虑的计划提供意见。在接下来的几天和几周内,您将收到有关如何分享反馈的更多信息。在学校层面,我们还将为我们的学校社区提供分享他们的想法的机会。

尽管建筑计划发生了变化,但选择学校仍然是我们学区的重要组成部分。BSD 和 景美 始终致力于 为学生提供卓越的教育,提供新的创新课程,并提供高质量的支持服务。感谢您的耐心和支持,我们共同努力应对挑战,同时确保所有学生取得积极成果。

真诚地,

谭校长
