A Message From The Board President:
Welcome to the Dixie School District
website! I am proud to be a member of the Dixie Board of Trustees. The
Board is made up of five individuals working towards one goal; providing
the best education and learning experience for the children who attend
the schools in our district.
The Trustees on the School Board have a wide
variety of skills and experiences that contribute to our ability to
govern the district. We all have or have had children in the district
which allows us to have an ongoing involvement with the staff and school
sites. As a parent with children in the district, I have volunteered in
the classroom, been a member of the Site Council and a CanDo! Class
The parents, teachers, district employees,
and administrators comprise our unique Dixie community. We are fortunate
to have the support of the PTA, Home and School Clubs, Site Councils,
local businesses and the Can Do! Education Foundation.
This past year was filled with plenty of
successes. Our District’s test scores topped a score of 900 for the
first time. This puts Dixie in the top 10% of the state. We were also
able to pass Proposition 30, which
prevented further education cuts in State funding.
Even with the passing of Proposition
30, budget issues will continue to be a
major focus for our Board. Tough times lie ahead. Up to now we have done
an excellent job of keeping cuts away from the classroom. With the
upcoming budget, however, hard decisions will have to be made and we
will be looking to our parent community for input. I am confident that
we will come together and make the best decision for the children in the
district. We do not take this job lightly.
My wife Keli and I have been parents in the
district for the past nine years. Our
daughter Alexa is in 8th
grade at Miller Creek and our son Jack is in 1st grade at Mary E. Silveira Elementary School.
I am always open to hear your ideas or
concerns. Feel free to call me at 415-637-3623 or email me at
Together we will continue to give our
children the best education possible.
Brad Honsberger, President
Dixie School District Board of Trustees
