A School Board meeting has been announced for Thursday, July, 13, 2006, at 6pm. The School Board will have further discussions about the planned facilities bond that will appear on the November 7, 2006, ballot. The School Board must approve and submit the measure by August 11, 2006. Since the costs of modernization and projects such as the freshman academy (9th grade academy), high school library expansion, performing arts center, Burrell Field improvements, etc. exceed the funds likely to be generated by the bond, the School Board will vote on what will get funded during its July 18, 2006, meeting.
Here is the agenda for the July 13, 2006, meeting, since it hasn't yet been posted to the School Board's web site:
