The Blaine County School District board of trustees will be holding three public meetings within the next few days.
The first is a special meeting set to begin at noon today, Nov. 5, at the school district office at 118 W. Bullion St. in Hailey. According to the agenda, the board will consider further sales of certificates of participation to fund projects authorized through the $59.8 million, 10-year plant facilities levy approved by the electorate in 2009.
Sales of the certificates allow the district to borrow money on future levy revenues.
The public is invited to the meeting, but will have to leave before it's over when the school board goes into executive session to discuss either personnel or student disciplinary issues,
On Monday from 6:30-8:30 p.m. the school board will hold a "town hall" meeting in room 301-302 at the Community Campus in Hailey. The purpose of the meeting is to give the public an opportunity to comment on communications with parents, community members and staff.
The school board's regular monthly meeting is set to begin at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the district office. It will follow another executive session to discuss staff or students set to start at 4:30 p.m.
Agenda items for the public part of the meeting include a Woodside Elementary School staff report, a strategic plan update from Superintendent Lonnie Barber, a curriculum update from Director of Curriculum Patricia McLean and an architect's report on a new maintenance facility the district plans to build with levy funds.
The board is also scheduled to consider establishing a new position of communications director.
