The De Soto School District’s Board of Education will meet this evening at 6 p.m..
During the meeting, Director of Finance Ken Larsen will present two agenda items on which the board is expected to act. One is the 2010-2011 Fiscal Year Audit Report, and the other is the sale of refunding bonds. Last month, the school board approved a resolution authorizing this sale. These are not new bonds but old ones the district plans to essentially refinance in order to save interest costs. According to the board’s minutes from last month’s meeting, refinancing will also help keep the mill levy for property owners steady over the coming decade.
In addition, the board will receive a number of written reports for their review. One will be on the topic of all-day kindergarten. According to the report, De Soto was one of a handful of Kansas school districts not offering full days for their youngest students during the 2010-2011 school year.
The meeting, which is open to the public, will take place in the district’s Administrative Offices; 35200 W. 91st St.; De Soto, KS 66018.
