The Park Hill School District’s Board of Education is meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 12.

According to the agenda, tonight board members will hold their annual re-organizational meeting to prepare for the 2012-2013 academic year. In addition, they will take action on the sale of bonds that will fund the building of the new elementary school.

Last spring, district voters approved $49.5 million in bond sales. The district has already sold $10 million of this amount. Today, district administrators planned to sell the remaining $39.5 million in bonds. Using this money, the district plans to pay for improving and renovating existing buildings, construction of additional class space at both high schools and Congress Middle School as well as construction of the new school.

Also today, Fred J. Sanchez and Allison Wurst will take the oath of office and re-join the Park Hill Board of Education. Both are former members, and they were the winners of last week’s election. After they are seated, the school board will elect a president, vice president, secretary and treasurer to lead during the coming year.

Park Hill’s board meeting, which is open to the public, will take place in the district’s Education Center; 7703 N.W. Barry Road; Kansas City, MO 64153.
