The February 24th ($4.1 Million) School Bond Election was the main topic of the meeting. The plans above show the proposed layout of the new building at the middle school campus. This building would replace the existing Media Center and Cafeteria buildings on the north end of the block. There will also be 6 new classrooms added at the high school and a list of other improvements on other campuses.
