OSAGE CITY—The USD 420 Board of Education began the
2011-12 school year with the appointment of officers and representatives,
along with passing a $4.5 million bond election resolution
for school improvements.
The bond follows long term planning for capital improvements
and renovations to the district’s facilities, including
additions, safety and technology improvements, construction
and installation of a running track and football field at
Jones Park and related improvements at the facility.
The board unanimously agreed on a motion by USD 420 Board
Member Cindy Cook to approve Resolution No. 2011, authorizing
the calling of a special question election for a $4.5 million
bond for educational capital improvements, pursuant to KSA
72-6761 and KSA 2315. The motion passed 6-0 with board member
Todd Petterson absent for the vote.
