On Tuesday, November 8, Peoria county voters will consider whether to support The Peoria County School Facilities Sales Tax. If approved by voters, the ½% sales tax would generate $9 million annually to be shared among all Peoria County public school districts, based on enrollment. The Peoria Public Schools would receive approximately $4.2 million annually. The revenue is to be used specifically for school building improvements. The Peoria Public Schools building and grounds staff has assessed the needs of each building in the District. Here is the plan for Roosevelt Magnet School.
The mission of Roosevelt Magnet School, as an innovative fine arts academy, is to ensure that each student develops to his or her academic, artistic and personal potential by integrating the arts and technology within a safe, nurturing environment, which embraces diversity in partnership with families and the community.
The vision of Roosevelt Magnet School is to prepare our students today for the world tomorrow through academics, character, and the Arts. During the 2015-2016 school year Roosevelt Magnet School will continue its focus and dedication to the Arts. Roosevelt will maintain ten full-time Arts teachers during the 2015-2016 school year. Additionally, Roosevelt will increase the Arts staff with an additional part-time Arts teacher to meet the needs of our students. Students who attend Roosevelt Magnet School are provided the opportunity to participate in a variety of Arts throughout the school day.
