  • A discussion on options for potential construction projects
  • A recommendation to approve a resolution to place a proposal on the Nov. 8, 2022 ballot to issue $179 million in bonds to improve facilities. The proposal includes school building maintenance projects; health, safety and security upgrades, including adding air-conditioning and more secure entrances; and expansion of the two middle schools (Herrick and O’Neill) to accommodate sixth-grade students. 
  • A recommendation to approve District 58’s Fiscal Year 2023 Consolidated District Plan application
