Line Mountain Art
A total of 26 student muralists worked on this project beginning in the Fall of 2019. Students either made direct references to the subject matter of Pop Culture from the late 60’s or made current depictions reflecting the Psychedelic Art era and style. Also, the mural is a tribute to the establishment of the school district in 1966. Many interesting references in the mural can be found from Jimmy Hendrix, to the Apollo Space Program, or the VW Van and many more including our throwback version of SpongeBob “FLAREPANTS”.

Click Here for more facts when speaking to your legislatures about House Bill 526 and Senate Bill 34 regarding funding reform for Cyber Schools
Proposed House Bill (526) and Senate Bill (34) could save Line Mountain taxpayers more than a half-million dollars. A full presentation regarding the continued concerns with local tax payer funding of Cyber Schools can be found by clicking HERE. While there is nothing definitive to report currently, there has been a lot of discussion on the bills introduced by Rep. Sonney (House Bill 526) and Sen. Schwank (Senate Bill 34) that would require parents to pay that tuition if the school district of residence offers a full-time cyber program. Although there is a lot of momentum and discussion about cyber charter tuition, many don’t think either bill will make it across the finish line. Please talk to your legislators about bills introduced by Rep. Sonney and Sen. Schwank and support for those bills.
