Holdingford School Board Briefs:

A School Board work session was held May 24th, 2017 for Levy/Referendum/Facility discussion.  

Chair Higgins asked Superintendent Swenson to present charts showing tax impact at various values of homes and farms. 

Mr. Overom from ICS presented to the Board the HVAC change/add order which will be an added cost of $10,951. Verbal approval for change order to move forward was given. Formal approval will be at the June 21st Board meeting.

The Board discussed history data on referendums in the area. The Ag Credit which is currently included in the tax bill, tax increases with options ranging from $6M to $23M and scenarios adding in operating dollars ranging from $300 to $460/Pupil.

Mr. Higgins addressed the Board conveying his message that it is time to establish a way to prioritize facility upgrades and decide what direction to go. Operating levy money is tight so the administration would like to see an increase in operating dollars included in a November public vote. The Board members consensus is to go with a 5 -10 year operating levy at approximately $300 per pupil as question one and with an additional one or two questions pertaining to facility improvements and additions. 

ICS is asked to send sample ballot questions to be discussed at the June 7, 2017 Work Session.

Following the Work Session the Board met with Superintendent Swenson and Business Manager Heinze to discuss negotiation proposals for the different group and individual contracts that end June 30, 2017.

This article is a summary of the minutes. The full text is available for public inspection at the District Office or online at http://www.isd738.org/school-board-meeting-agendasminutes.html.
