During the Aug. 19 School Board meeting a Public Hearing was opened to discuss any public concerns or questions with regard to the 2014/2015 Budget for Prosser School District.
Craig Reynolds, Business Manager, presented those in attendance the Budget Calendar; a Budget and Excess Levy Summary; and 2014-2015 General Fund Assumptions; as well as, other budgets including Associated Student Body Fund (ASB), Debt Service Fund, Capital Projects Fund and the Transportation Vehicle Fund - all with comparative data from actuals since 2010.
My name is Dot Starkey and I will be a Resource Room Teacher at Housel Middle School.  I am not an unfamiliar face to many as I have previously worked in the Prosser School District 28 years as an administrator or teacher retiring from the district in 2006. 
Since retiring, I have worked in various surrounding area districts under the retire/rehire program.  This will be my 41st year working in public education.  I love kids and working with them to achieve their fullest potential.  I am married to my husband, Bill, and we have two grown children both graduates of Prosser.
