With enrollment growing 1,400 students in 5 years, task force recommends new school 
After four months of study, the district's Facility Task Force recommended the School Board consider a $110.5 million bond referendum in November 2019 for deferred maintenance, a new school and a new bus garage. No decisions have been made at this time. District leaders will seek community input through a parent focus group, a community survey and a public listening session on March 11. After that, the School Board will consider the input, ask for administrative recommendations and aim for a June decision about a referendum request. Read more HERE.

Preparing the budget for the 2019-20 school year 
The district's budgeting process begins with making assumptions about enrollment, revenue and expenses for the upcoming school year. This is the first step that ends with budget approval by June 30. The School Board reviewed budget assumptions for the 2019-20 school year at its meeting Jan. 28. Read more HERE.
