Community Leaders Get First Look at ISD 728 Project Timeline
Leaders from around the ISD 728 communities visited the District Office Building Wednesday, Dec. 11 for an afternoon of updates, information and activities.
Included was a presentation on the 2019 Referendum, which was passed by voters last November.
The Community Leadership Team was presented with preliminary timelines for seven of the larger projects that will occur over the next five years thanks to the bonding question (Question 2) passed by voters:
The new middle school in Otsego
Improvements at renovations Lincoln Elementary School
Renovations and updates at VandenBerge Middle School
Reconstruction of Handke Family Center’s south wing
Renovations, updates and improvements to activities and physical education spaces at all three traditional high schools.
The CLT was also updated on the financial impact of Question 1’s approval, which consolidated levies and created new funding for ISD 728 programs. The emphasis will be on classrooms and curriculum as the District continues to restore and improve programs in order to deliver on outcomes designated by the Strategic Plan.
