COLONA - School board president Jim Legare and board member Jennifer Webster have been named to the Committee of Ten to work for passage of the proposed school consolidation with East Moline, Silvis and United Township school districts.|
The goal is to get the referendum issue on the Nov. 4 ballot..
The two were selected at Thursday's board meeting.
Consolidation also will be discussed during a Feb. 22 school board retreat from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the school.
The retreat is open to the public. Superintendent Kyle Ganson said discussion of consolidation will be about 1 p.m., along with a discussion of finances, which will explain why the school looked at consolidation in the first place.
Also on the agenda are district goals, academic goals and priorities for the one-cent school facilities sales tax. Possible work includes cafeteria equipment, parking lot work and door replacement.
The school expects to receive $150,000 to $180,000 from the new tax, if it is approved by voters.
