Sultan School District Invites You to Participate

It is important to the Sultan School Board that the values our community holds for educating our students are represented in the vision and mission of our school district. To ensure this, periodically we engage with community members, students and staff to have clarity on what vision you hold for our student’s education. 

We would greatly appreciate your contribution to this process and cordially invite you to participate in a focus group. Colleen Miller, director of Leadership Development for the Washington State School Directors’ Association, will be the facilitator for these groups. She will be leading us through some defined processes to effectively and efficiently gather feedback from you during a 3 and a half hour meeting. You will be interacting with other community members, staff members and possibly students. 

We would appreciate your response in choosing one of the focus group sessions below; the location of the focus groups will be the Startup Event Center (Startup Gym), 14315 366th Ave SE, Sultan, WA 98294. Please let us know (by using the link here) what session that you will be able to commit to attend.

The Sultan School Board values your time and participation and thank you for helping the Sultan School District to continue to honor our community and pursue the dreams we hold for our children.

Thank you, 
Superintendent Dan Chaplik and the Sultan School District Board of Directors


Tourism Promotion Area (TPA) Grants Program

Tourism Promotion Area (TPA) Grants were established by the lodging industry to increase overnight stays in Snohomish County. With funding in place, the TPA is looking to support new ideas and events that bring loads of life and overnight lodging to the county. This program is open to applications from public, nonprofit or private entities with a demonstrated ability to accomplish the proposed project. The Board meets the third Tuesday of each month at Willis Tucker Park in Snohomish and applications need to be submitted by the first of that month in order to be presented to the Board. Some projects in our region that we know to be successful include a focus on outdoor recreation, sporting events, conventions and tradeshows, festivals, niche conferences and concerts…but that’s not all. Chances are you’ve got an idea for something we haven’t even thought of yet.

The TPA Grant differs from other lodging grants offered by Snohomish County because they may fund, at their discretion, a range of expenses beyond just marketing and promotions. TPA funds may include community development programs, bid fees, officials’ fees, venue rental fees, conference/convention or trade show costs, transportation costs and more. Previous median project funding has been $40,000. The TPA generally does not support administrative or personnel-related costs, and projects are one-year funding unless otherwise indicated.

Here’s the link with all the details and the actual application: https://www.snocotpa.com/

Thank you and see you next week!
