New Gibbon Fairfax Winthrop (GFW) School Superintendent Jeff Horton presented his 100-day plan to the school board Monday. Horton said his plan includes budgeting, COVID-19 planning, a facilities review, listening, a social media campaign, district-wide mailings and presentations in the coming weeks. Horton said the school district cut $468,000 from its budget last year as part of its SOD plan. GFW voters will vote on an operating levy referendum Tuesday, Aug. 13. If approved, the GFW operating referendum would raise taxes $16.67 a month, $200 a year on a home valued at $100,000. Horton said if the August referendum fails, classes will become larger and programs will be cut. Horton said he will work to create a more efficient budget with evidence-based, strategic planning. Horton said he will meet with many groups in the coming weeks and months, townships, cities and everyone else to learn how to best serve them.
