Blue Valley School District’s Board of Education met Monday, March 5, at 7 p.m.

In addition to routine items on the agenda, such as approving construction change orders and a proclamation declaring April Blue Valley Educational Foundation Month, board members had a full agenda.

One significant agenda item was approval of a resolution bringing the district into compliance with federal requirements regarding school bond issues. In addition, the board directed the sale of bonds authorized by voters earlier this year. The sale will take place in April.

Other business included approval of a resolution to exchange Stanley Nature Park for another, slightly larger park tract about five miles south. Although neighborhood groups have opposed the exchange, the district would like to use the land — which is next to Blue Valley High School — for sports programs.

The Board of Education meeting, which was open to the public, took place in the District Office Board Room; 15020 Metcalf Ave.; Overland Park, KS 66283.
