Operational Referendum
On  April 4, 2017, there will be an Operational Referendum question on the election ballot designed to help our District overcome a financial challenge. Funds would be used to protect and develop educational programming, attract and retain teachers, and rebuild the District fund reserve. 

We invite you to learn more about why we need this funding and how it will help us move forward with improved outcomes for our students. Click here for a list of Community Information Sessions.

Facility Planning Committee Update
The Facility Master Plan Team continues to meet monthly to focus on the development of a 20-year facility plan with short-term 3-5 year goals and long-range strategies for implementation. This month, the committee focused on the critical issues we face related to the 5-year maintenance of our most needy facilities. Committee members worked to list possible solutions and prioritize the area of focus moving forward. At the end of the session, the committee agreed that the Central facility will be the focus of the first part of the 20-year facility plan. Click here for the meeting notes.
