Board to discuss bond issue strategy

The Lawrence school board will hear several reports at its meeting today.

David Arteberry, senior vice president of George K. Baum & Co., the district’s bond financial advisers, will talk about the strategies for paying for a proposed bond issue, which the board hopes to have on an April ballot.

Adam Holden, assistant superintendent, will talk about the Kansas Common Core, a change to curriculum. Janet Herdman, consultant for Alexander Open Systems, will discuss the technology review that’s recently been done in preparation for the bond issue.

The board will also vote on whether to create a new job within administration, that of assistant director of curriculum and instruction. The Douglas County Food Policy Council will then present a plan to declare the week of Oct. 22 “Farm to School Week.”

More information about the agenda can be found at the board’s website.

The board meets at 7 p.m. today at the district office, 110 McDonald Drive.
