    60-SECOND VIDEO REVEALS SCHOOLS’ SPACE CRUNCH

    This month, the District produced a video revealing the reality of schools stressed beyond capacity. In addition, a new website shares school-specific details of capacity challenges discovered by the recent facilities task force. At its May 16 meeting, the School Board discussed a facilities development proposal addressing the identified needs across the District and estimating the associated costs. The Board has requested that the administration create an accompanying timeline that would eventually allow it to propose a bond referendum for Election Day, November 7, 2017
