Last month, the school board approved a motion to move forward on the plan to consolidate the elementary grades on to the Gervais Campus.┬á Three buildings have been put up for sale: Brooks, Eldriedge and North Howell.┬á We have had people inquire about each of the properties, but so far no offers have been made.┬á
At┬áthe July school board meeting, the board discussed the prospect of going out for a bond to ensure adequate funding exists for the consolidation project.┬á Although the board has had several meetings regarding the consolidation, they have not had a meeting devoted primarily to a bond levy. ┬áPlease join us in this discussion and pass the word about the meeting.┬á Here is the press release announcing the meeting.
There will be a community forum on August 2 in the Gervais School District Conference Room.┬á The purpose of the forum is to discuss the possibility of putting a bond initiative on the ballot for the November election. The meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. with a summary of the consolidation plan and an update on the sale of district buildings. Following, there will be a presentation discussing the pros and cons of a bond initiative to help pay for consolidation related expenses. Immediately after the presentation the floor will be open to the public for comments and questions.
Thank you all,
