MEETING DATE:   11-8-06  DATE PREPARED:  11-1-06

AGENDA ITEM:  #11  AGENDA TITLE:  Bond, MS

ITEM REQUESTED BY:  Stuber/Heiss

 

SUMMARY:  Should the MS Bond Measure receive a majority “yes” vote, Mrs. Heiss and I will update the board on our next steps.

 

SUPERINTENDENT’S ADVICE:  Assuming the measure passes we recommend the Board to establish a Bond Oversight Committee.  The composition of the BOC is the discretion of the Board however I recommend that the size be manageable.  We will review the operational guidelines of the previous BOC with the architect and bring a recommended guideline for board consideration in December.  I recommend board members to consider whom they want to ask to serve on this committee and forward those names for action in December. 

        Mrs. Heiss, Mrs. Burrus and I will meet with the architect at 10:00 a.m. on November 13.  We are going to review the “next steps” necessary to: 1) select a contractor, 2) finalize design features, 3) define the role of the BOC, and 4) whatever else he feels we should deliberate.  We will invite the architect to the December School Board meeting and discuss/take action on an overall plan.  We will keep the Board and community updated on BOC agendas, meeting minutes and other matters on the district web site.
