The Gardner Edgerton School District’s Board of Education will meet Monday, June 11, at 6 p.m.

In addition to routine items on the agenda – such as renewing dental and health insurance and approving personnel changes – board members will be considering changing a district policy and overseeing details of construction projects funded by school bond sales.

Tonight, district administration plans to recommend changes to the school board’s Facility Usage policy.

Much of the rest of the evening will be dedicated to overseeing projects funded by $72 million in school bond sales approved by voters earlier this year. Operations Director Gary Diener will recommend approving bids for construction of the new elementary school. He also will recommend hiring professionals for construction testing and inspection of all bond-funded projects. In addition to the new elementary, projects will include a new middle school, land acquisition, a multipurpose activity center, capital improvements and technology upgrades.

The Board of Education meeting, which is open to the public, will take place in the District Offices Building; 231 E. Madison St.; Gardner, KS 66030. Their next regular meeting will take place on Monday, July 16.
