Grandview School District’s Board of Education will meet Thursday, April 12, at 6 p.m.

In addition to routine items on the agenda, such as reviewing requests for student overnight field trips and setting meal prices for next school year, board members have a full schedule.

Usually they meet at 6:30 p.m., but tomorrow evening they will meet half an hour earlier than usual to swear in the two winners of last week’s school board election. Those winners were incumbent Rachel Casey and former member Leonard Greene.  Also, during this annual reorganization meeting, board members will select a president, vice president and treasurer to lead during the 2012-2013 school year.

During the regular meeting, members will review a district policy, “Board Member Conflict of Interest and
Financial Disclosure.”

Afterward, they will consider authorizing the sale of $7 million in bonds approved by voters last year. Plus they will hear an update on projects to be funded by bond sale proceeds, including:

    • Asbestos abatement monitoring at Grandview Middle School
    • Carpeting, benches and tables at Grandview High School
    • Concrete repairs and improvements
    • Emergency lighting throughout the district
    • Renovations at four elementary schools

The board meeting, which is open to the public, will take place at the Board of Education Offices; 13015 10th St.; Grandview, MO 64030.
