The Grove School Board will vote whether to approve details regarding a $1.1 million bond issue during this month's meeting.

The meeting takes place at 7 p.m., Tuesday, April 11 at the Grove Administration Building located on 210 South Broadway, Grove.

The proposed resolution determines the maturities of, and setting a date, time and place for the sale of a General Obligation Building Bond.

The bonds being sold are part of the 10-year bond issue, approved by voters in March 2015 to build the new Performing Arts Center on the campus of Grove High School.

In 2015, district voters approved the $15.7 million bond which also included improvements to the district's technology which included a new phone system.

That measure passed by a vote of 79.20 percent or 1,394 votes for, to 20.80 percent or 366 votes against. In the end, 1,760 votes were cast by the 10,0000 plus voters living within the school district.


The board will consider several employment positions including hiring two summer custodians and voting to approve transferring the mid-school library clerk and Indian Education Cultural Specialist and tutor to the Lower Elementary Principal’s secretary.

The board will also vote whether to approve reemploying the tenured and non-tenured certified staff and part-time retired certified staff and approving Superintendent Sandy Coaly to notify in writing support personnel with 10-month and 12-month contracts and support managers and directors the board does not presently intend to enter into a written contract of employment for the 2017-18 school year.

In other business, the board will vote whether to approve a bid on a Kubota 60-inch mower and a contract with Gabbart Communications for annual district, campus and teacher websites.
