School facilities presentation postponed


The USD 489 board of education meeting scheduled for April 29 for the facilities needs committee presentation of its recommendations has been postponed.

With teachers being laid off, the public asked to support a tax increase and great uncertainty surrounding state funding of public schools, the timing isn't right, Patrick Lowry and Bryce Young, committee co-chairmans, said in a memo to the board.

The presentation might be rescheduled at a later time. The compiled materials, including an executive summary, will be submitted to the district.
