School Announcements
Bolivar Schools to host town hall meeting March 30
The Bolivar R-1 School District will host a town hall meeting regarding the April 7, 2015 ballot issue at 7 p.m. Monday, March 30 in the auditorium at Bolivar High School.
“We have presented information on the items that will be on the ballot for April at community meetings over the last several months,” Dr. Jason Dial said. “This town hall meeting will provide an opportunity for those in the community interested in learning more about the bond issue to receive that information as well as ask any questions they might have.”
The projects proposed in the ballot include:
Safety and Security – This project would include creating secure, interior check-in locations at each main attendance center to insure proper monitoring of visitors to our facilities. The project also includes relocating the Intermediate School Library which will allow for a more open and collaborative learning space for our students.
BPS Kitchen – The current Primary School kitchen was constructed in 1963. It is currently on two levels. A successful bond issue would provide for upgrades and renovations to the Primary School kitchen and cafeteria areas.
HVAC/Ventilation  - This project would include replacing more than 200 units throughout the district that are considered beyond their expected service life as well as installing new ventilation units in areas that showed the greatest need for improved ventilation.
Paying off current debt - Paying off the current lease purchase in 2017; currently, $750,000 per year is paid for out of general revenue dollars on this lease/purchase debt.
In January, the Bolivar R-1 Board of Education unanimously approved a resolution calling for a bond issue to be placed on the April 7, 2015 ballot. The issue asked for no more than $11 million and, if approved by voters, will increase the tax levy by approximately 14 cents.
For more information on this bond issue, please contact Dr. Dial at 417-326-5291.
