FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CARMEL, IN – Carmel City Council Candidate, Jessica Irvine, voiced her adamant support today for renewing the Carmel Clay Schools referendum, emphasizing its critical role in maintaining the high educational standards of local schools.
"Our schools have always been the pride of Carmel, consistently ranking among the top in the state and the nation. The referendum has played a pivotal role in this success, and it is crucial that we renew our commitment to this funding," said Irvine.
While Carmel Clay Schools have consistently been recognized for excellence, the potential fallout of not renewing the referendum is alarming. A potential 20% staffing reduction would be a severe blow, leading to ballooning class sizes and potentially cutting various programs that have been vital in shaping the holistic education our children receive. This is a scenario that could jeopardize the stellar reputation and outstanding achievements of our schools.
"Carmel Clay Schools are indeed the crown jewels of Carmel. As a council candidate, a Carmel Clay Schools alumna, and, more importantly, as a resident who deeply values education, I cannot stress enough the importance of this referendum," Irvine emphasized. "Our educators, students, and the entire community deserve nothing but the best. This is not just about keeping our schools functioning. It's about ensuring they continue to shine brightly, setting a standard for excellence that others aspire to."
Irvine calls on all Carmel residents to reflect upon the long-term implications of the decision. The integrity and future of Carmel's educational system hang in the balance. The referendum's renewal ensures that future generations continue to receive top-tier education, keeping the legacy of Carmel Clay Schools intact.
The strength of our community is intertwined with the quality of education we provide. Carmel Clay Schools not only serve our children's educational needs but also play a crucial role in attracting businesses and families to Carmel. Quality schools contribute to high property values, a strong sense of community, and a thriving local economy.
Every voice matters, and Irvine is using hers to advocate for the future of Carmel’s children. She urges every resident to rally behind our schools and vote 'Yes' for the referendum renewal. "I am fully committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure that our schools continue to be the best. I urge all my fellow residents to join me in supporting the renewal of the Carmel Clay Schools referendum," concluded Irvine.
