SPRINGFIELD PLATTEVIEW SCHOOL DISTRICT

COMMUNITY MEETING ON FACILITY IMPROVEMENTS

AND POSSIBLE BOND ELECTION

Surveys have been sent out to the community over the holidays to allow the district feedback on facility improvement planning since the bond election failed in November 2013.  You can also take the survey online at www.springfield-platteview-bond.com.  This information will assist the Board of Education on how to proceed in addressing facility needs moving forward and possibly going out for another bond election.  Your participation is critical to the future of the school district.  There will be a public meeting Monday, January 27 at 7 PM in the high school cafeteria to review results from the survey and for the Board of Education to hear community feedback directly.

 

 

COMMUNITY BLOOD DRIVE
