Charleston R-I School District Delays Bond Issue

Board President Hamil Corse stated, “The Board of Education is committed to doing the right thing for students. We appreciated the community’s input; we listened; and we heard your concerns. We plan to use this feedback to further explore options for financing and facility improvements, before moving forward with a bond issue.”

This decision follows two recent community meetings held to gather public feedback regarding plans to use a bond issue to upgrade and reformat facilities in Charleston R-I School District.

“As the District strives to maintain and improve our facilities, it is critical we work harder to develop a plan which our community can support,” Superintendent Dr. Tammy Lupardus said. “I am pleased the District is exercising due diligence to ensure a plan that provides safety and security, structural and mechanical systems, as well as educational needs of students, while honoring the wishes of our community.”
