WCS updates new budget

As of Tuesday, no petitions had yet been filed for the position, but Marcella said Tuesday she was intending to file a petition for re-election to her seat.

She has gained a reputation for balancing the community's educational needs with the fiscal concerns of the taxpayers.

Marcella said Tuesday she was open to input from all in the community.

"Decision-making on the school board is not only about the children, but the taxpayers, school district employees and residents also need to be taken into account," she said.

The issues the school board now faces, in the light of financial constraints and spiraling state and federal mandates, are extremely challenging, she said.

"Everybody needs to try to be a part of the solution," she said.

The deadline for filing positions for the board seat is April 18 at 5 p.m.
