Holdingford School Board Briefs

Board Chair Higgins called the School Board Work Session to order at 6:00 PM on May 23, 2018. Mr. Overom from ICS distributed a revised cost configuration of the Referendum Project proposal. Mr. Lenz from MLA Architects distributed a revised concept plan design. Discussion took place on what items to include and what to eliminate on the referendum.

Mr. Feia was asked to report on the FFA Alumni meeting he was invited to attend on May 21st. He attended the meeting to collect input on the up-coming referendum options which he shared with the Board. 

There was a lengthy discussion on the Gymnasium space and on the Shop space. The Board looked at putting each on the ballot as a separate question. In the end, it was decided to eliminate both of these items at this time in order to keep the tax increases as low as possible in line with what the survey results indicated. The Board understands the needs but has decided it isn’t financially feasible at this time. 

Discussion ensued on elementary classroom space. Board members agreed that just adding two is not sufficient. Mr. Christensen asked about removing the wall between the Student Lounge and High School Cafeteria to enlarge that space. Mr. Swenson confirmed the additional space is needed in the high school cafeteria and this should be included.

Mr. Higgins summarized the consensus to go with a first question of a Tech/Operating Levy of $200 per pupil. The second question will be the Referendum, consisting of roof replacement, elementary classroom addition and secure front office entrance, re-work elementary parking lots and expand high school parking lot, re-work existing high school office/entry adding security and enlarging the entrance/commons area.  

Mr. Overom will bring revised costs for the next Work Session which is scheduled for June 6th at 6:00 PM in the board room.

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.
