There will be a special board meeting on Monday November 21st at 7 o'clock at the Greater Clark administration building for the purpose of approving 1028 Resolutions for 3 proposed projects:
- Northaven renovation project $6 million Projected tax impact 1.97 cents/ $100 AV
- Charlestown Middle project $7 million Projected tax impact 2.3 cents/ $100 AV
- River Valley project $9 million Projected tax impact 2.96/ $100 AV
Once the Board passes this (which they will) the community will have 30 days to gather signatures for or against.
This $22 million in bonds is in addition to the $8 million the board approved a few months ago.
The decision about what to do with Maple and Spring Hill won't be made until spring and could possibly mean more bonds.
Go to gcs.k12.in.us to view the agenda although no specifics are given
So for those of you NOT PAYING ATTENTION...they want to take out an additional 22 million less that SEVEN months after the 8 million they asked for in April. According to the administrator's estimates in the April Resolution hearing, the cost of enclosing all three schools according to code would be 2 million per school over three years...so if my math is correct that is six million (2 million per school) x 3 (years) = 18 million. SO WHY ARE THEY ASKING FOR 22 MILLION? THAT'S 4 MILLION MORE THAN ESTIMATED MERE MONTHS AGO!!
For the April 5th meeting at which the 1028 Resolution was approved there were fancy PowerPoints and lots of information put out there for the public to see what the money was being spent for. Now, there is NO INFORMATION!!!! Nothing has been posted on BoardDocs, nor is the meeting published on the Greater Clark County Schools Facebook page.
