School Board to discuss facilities, survey results

Future of bond issue on agenda

— Discussion of a potential $30 million bond issue to build or renovate the community’s elementary schools will continue at Monday’s Steamboat Springs School Board study session.

Discussion of the Harris Interactive survey results also is on the agenda.

Superintendent Donna Howell said the facilities discussion will center on answering lingering questions about facilities and talking about the financial impacts of the bonds.

“We haven’t made a decision yet,” Howell said about the future of an estimated $30 million bond to rebuild Soda Creek Elementary and renovate Strawberry Park Elementary. “They need to give me an idea of direction because we will have to start working on ballot language because they would have to send the language in to be on the ballot by Sept. 8.”

The Harris Interactive survey results is the first item to be discussed Monday. A representative from the firm will be at the meeting to go over the results and the meaning with board members.

“It’s satisfaction with the school district,” Howell said. “What’s the level of satisfaction of students, parents and staff members on a variety of different items? We take that info and look at it and set goals to improve satisfaction climate.”
