Board to review school bond issues

November 18, 2004

At a work session Monday, the Lansing School Board will discuss and review issues surrounding its plan for a school bond election in April.

"We're talking about facilities issues," said Shelly Gowdy, school board president.

Schools Superintendent Randal Bagby is going to try to have some possible plans for board members to look at for size and configuration of a new K-5 building and an auditorium/band room at the high school, she said.

"We're hoping that there'll be cost estimates with that so that we can start looking at what makes sense and what is affordable," Gowdy said.

She said the board would take no official action at the meeting, which is 7 p.m. Monday in the Middle School choir room, but would work to get fully informed on all bond-related issues.

The board is tentatively looking to vote on a bond resolution at its Dec. 13 meeting.

If board members decide to move forward and ask voters to approve a bond issue for school improvements, the vote is expected to be in April 2005.
