The first public input session on plans for the new District 518 property will take place at 7 p.m. today inside the band room at Worthington High School. We urge attendance at either this forum or another on June 21.
Late last month, the school district released a site plan for the 157-acre property purchased by the district in March. The construction bond referendum that residents will vote on in November will include a 25-year bond at $75 million to build a new high school, stadium, shotput/discus field, two parking lots, three to four soccer fields, two softball fields and a baseball field on the property.
In an article in the May 28 Daily Globe, Superintendent John Landgaard said the school district wants to hear any input on its plans. “There will be lots of conversations - and this is what it’s about,” Landgaard said, adding: “The school is a community asset, so it’s time to speak up so we get it the way the community wants.”
The school is indeed a community asset, and we can say without question that a healthy school district increases the likelihood of a healthy community. If you care about your city, make sure to do your part in helping it toward a brighter future.
