Residents of Menard County:
On behalf of the PORTA Board of Education, I would like thank Menard County residents for passing the 1% Sales tax on November 6, 2018. Thank you to everyone who voted in this election. We take fiscal responsibility very seriously and are grateful for your continued support. These funds will go a long way in assisting PORTA Schools in maintaining and enhancing our facilities to help provide a quality education for all our students and community members.
As always we invite you to continue your participation in our Board meetings as an active member of our community so that everyone can be well-informed and confident that these valuable funds are being utilized to their fullest potential.
It is our belief that the PORTA District plays an important role in the success of our entire community. We hope to continue to build relationships with our municipalities to increase interest in our communities so that we can enhance opportunities for business and draw more families to our wonderful school district.
Most importantly, thank you for trusting us with your most prized possessions, your children. We believe the PORTA District is a very fine School District and one of the key reasons, aside from our amazing staff and students, is that we live in a very supportive, education minded community.
Matthew W. Brue
