Sound Off: Bond presentation
Is it true that on a recent Wednesday, during an early dismissal time, that the staff at Sunflower School and Southwest Middle School attended a meeting about the proposed school district bond issue?
Yes. According to Julie Boyle, the Lawrence school district’s spokeswoman, “bond issue informational presentations are being shared with staff at each school at various times during the contracted duty day.” Boyle said that input from school staff, “has been integral to the Lawrence Board of Education’s bond issue planning process. The district is now responsible for informing staff, and the public, about the specifics of the proposal.” A schedule of public informational presentations is available on the district’s website, www.usd497.org.
