The ceiling completion will happen the week of the 23rd as well as the floor demolition and replacement. The 30th and 31st will see the installation of the doors and the whiteboards. The classrooms should be ready for teachers on August 1st. The addition should have ground work starting Thursday or Friday depending on the weather.
In new business, the board approved setting the tax rate hearing. The board as a taxing entity is required to hold a public meeting to discuss the tax rate for the district. The meeting was set for August 15th at 7:00 pm. It will be located in Room 101 of the School. The proposed tax rate and public information will be posted around town prior to the meeting date.
