In recent months, a District Facilities Committee consisting of parents, patrons, educators and consultants was formed to evaluate educational and other programs for present and future, and prioritized needs for quality education. The Committee identified specific areas:
- Improvements for safety and security in all schools for students, teachers and staff;
- Classroom additions to meet growth demands in the future
- Additional classroom and support spaced for enhanced and efficient education and individualized learning;
- Consolidation to increase efficiencies
The Committee submitted their recommendations to the USD #375 Board of Education and recommended a bond referendum as the most cost-effective way to address these challenges and goals. After much consideration throughout the process, and input from several sources, the Board of Education approved a resolution scheduling a special bond election for April 28th, 2020.
