I am so excited and proud to be able to start the new school year as your new superintendent.
Sidney schools have such a rich tradition and I feel so lucky to be a part of it. My wife Wendy and I are very much looking forward to being a part of the community and welcome the opportunity to meet so many of the people that have made Sidney City Schools such a great place.
Financially the district is in decent shape. However, in order for the district to remain that way, this November we will be placing a renewal of our emergency (“emergency” is the name the state makes us call it) levy. This will be a straight renewal without any increase so no one will be paying any additional money. In fact, as new construction happens everyone actually pays less because the amount is spread out over more homes. We have worked very hard to be able to put this renewal on without asking for additional funds.
I hope you all have had a great summer. I look forward to seeing you and your children this coming August.
In Jacket Pride,
Bob Humble, Superintendent
