Belton School District’s Board of Education will meet Thursday, May 10, at 7 p.m.

In addition to routine agenda items, such as declaring surplus property and renewing employee benefits, board members will hear an update on school bond financing.

Earlier this spring, Belton voters approved $9.5 million in school bond sales to finance a building project designed to help ease overcrowding. Bonds are a form of public debt, similar to mortgages for home owners. According to the district’s informational flyer, the purpose of the bonds would be to fulfill the strategic plan adopted by the Board of Education in 1999. As part of that plan, board members promised to “[c]ontinue construction of the comprehensive high school on the current Freshman Center campus.”

Tonight’s meeting, which is open to the public, will take place at the Walnut Building; 110 W. Walnut; Belton, MO 64012.

The next meeting will take place Thursday, May 24.
