Education Protection Act Funding (EPA)
Proposition 30, the Governor's Tax Measure, impacted Revenue Limit funding for the current year and subsequent years. The primary focus of Prop 30 was whether or not revenue limits would be cut $441 per ADA. Had the measure failed, the revenue limit deficit factor would have been increased from 22.272% to 28.814% to implement the reduction. With the passage of Prop 30, there is no increase to the deficit factor, thus flat funding was maintained in 2012-2013.
The Prop 30 funding will flow through a newly established Education Protection Account (EPA). This funding must be maintained in the SACS Resource 14000 to accommodate the additional accountability requirements which include:
We welcome parent involvement at Monson-Sultana Elementary School. Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education generally are more successful in school and in life.
Please visit the school office any time and stay in touch with your child's teacher - see the Staff Directory for phone numbers and e-mail addresses.
We also welcome community participation, including donations of time, money, materials and expertise.

To enter kindergarten in any school year, a child must be five years old on or before December 2 of that year. Proof of residence within the district is required. If you do not live within our school's boundary area, you must obtain an interdistrict attendance agreement between this district and you district of residence.
Kindergarten registration is normally held the preceding March. If you are unable to register your child at that time, you may register anytime at the School District Office.
To register a child, please present proof of residence address (utility or property tax bill), and proof of date of birth (birth certificate, baptismal certificate or other legal proof). Parents must also present the child's written immunization record from a physician, nurse or health department. Prior to school entry, children must be immunized for the following:
A waiver of the immunization requirement may be obtained for religious or health reasons. Contact the school nurse for further information.
Parent involvement is always welcome. Here are a few ways you can participate in your child's school, but be creative in offering your time and talents to assist in the learning of our students.
