Hello Friends of Thorp and Bowen,
You may check the school by school list of budget cuts and then the amounts restored. Thorp was cut 50,800. Now 17,300 is restored leaving us with 33,500 that is not coming back.
Bowen HS was cut 93,200. Only 18,900 was restored.
At the February 22, Board of Education https://youtu.be/4edwfrqTtmc two of our Bowen students spoke-up about the need for a school marquee. (go to the 1:47 time mark)
We think we got the ball rolling again. The Facilities Manager spoke with us after their statements.
