Ensure district resources support the strategic plan
In an effort to upgrade our bus fleet, we have made an offer on a surplus bus 2006, 72 passenger from Mansfield school district. This will allow us to surplus our 1994 bus that has too many miles.
The bid date for our construction project is now September 11th. If we were to leave it on the 6th, the only contractor we would see a bid from is Fowler. By moving it to the 11th, we will be getting bids from Walker, Chervenell, Graham and Blews.
We are currently applying for a grant to fund a new playground. This is an OSPI grant and if it is funded it will add a modern play structure big enough for K-5 students. This will alleviate the absence of MEGA mansion. MEGA will begin to be dismantled this week.
