Measure CK-funded SMART Board at Golden Oak Community SchoolThe item was on the board’s consent calendar, which is approved by one motion of the board unless items are held for discussion.

The $3 million bond is part of Measure CK, which was passed by Sulphur Springs District voters in June 2012.

It's only a small part of the $72 million that Measure CK is expected to raise for the district, said Lynn David, assistant superintendent of business services.

The bonds approved by the board on Tuesday will be used specifically to modernize Valley View and Pinetree Community Schools, David said.

In addition to hosting grades K-12, Valley View also includes a facility for the districts severely disabled or medically fragile students.

The money will also be used for a district-wide technology upgrade.

Before a bond can be approved, the county board must hold a hearing and take action on the bond.

Thanks to board approval, the district can go ahead with bond sales, which are scheduled to start on Wednesday, according to the letter district officials sent to the board.

The district is “very excited to be moving forward,” David said.

“We want to really honor (the community’s) support and continue to make our schools the best they can be,” she said.

The county Board was also scheduled to receive a report from the Director of Health Services on the county’s implementation of the Affordable Care Act, but the presentation was continued until April 1.

The board typically meets at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesdays. View upcoming meeting agendas, here.
