  • Finance Committee Presentation April 2024

    With Finance Committee co-chair Daniel Shultz presiding, the Finance Committee and Facilities Committees convened in person and via video conferencing for a combined monthly meeting on Tuesday, April 2. At the meeting, the committees reviewed a presentation regarding the capital planning and feasibility study conducted by architectural firm KCBA. KCBA presented several pathways for long-term capital planning and operational efficiency. Both pathways focused on addressing aging buildings, whether it be moving students to modern buildings, or upgrading existing classroom spaces. The committee then reviewed the financial implications of each pathway as presented by the district's director of business services. These presentations were followed up with time to receive public comment and feedback.  The next Facilities and Financial Affairs Committee meetings are Tuesday, May 7. Video>>
