Fort Osage School District’s Board of Education will meet Tuesday, May 8, at 7 p.m.

In addition to routine items on the agenda — such as selling surplus property and purchasing propane heating fuel for the upcoming academic year — board members will have a full schedule.

In new business, they will review revisions to the district’s Internet Usage policy.

Also, board members will hear an update on construction projects funded by $7.8 million in school bonds approved by voters last spring. In addition to hearing the update, board members will consider approving payment to contractors for work on the roof of Osage Trail Middle School and the district’s HVAC and energy management systems. Both are projects funded by the sale of school bonds. Among the other projects, roof replacements at Buckner Elementary and the Central Office are already complete, as is installation of new stadium lights. Tentatively scheduled for this summer are roof replacements at the Career and Technology Center and classroom renovation at Fort Osage High School. Plans are for all bond-funded projects to be complete by the time students return to school next fall.

The Fort Osage Board of Education meeting, which is open to the public, will take place at the Gragg Administrative Office; 2101 N. Twyman Road; Independence, MO 64058.
