The work of the Bond Planning Task Force has been completed and their recommendation was made to the board during an August 10th meeting. The recommendation was the culmination of several months of discussion that included current facility conditions and district programs and cost analysis. The report includes a list of project priorities, a timeline for a potential bond measure and strategies to achieve the greatest impact on student learning. No decision has been made by the board. Community engagement regarding the bond recommendation is encouraged during the Aug. 31 and Sept. 14 board meetings. The report is now available on our website here.
