Public input kicks off District 518 school board work session

WORTHINGTON — The District 518 Board of Education requested input and the public answered its call during Monday night’s well-attended board work session that opened with a 30-minute public input agenda item.  

Among recommendations made by 11 members of the public addressing the board included another attempt at an intermediate school, further exploration of building additions and renovations, private business partnerships or sponsorships, updating an enrollment study and scrapping existing construction consultant and architecture contracts, to name a few.

Monday’s work session, a product of the failed referendum attempt Feb, 12, was called in an effort to discuss the district’s facility needs and potential future plans as they relate to continuous space struggles.

The work session was intended to encourage public input and help further board discussion. No action was taken during the meeting, which lasted more than an two hours.
