What was the
process used in determining what should be in this bond plan?
Planning for the school bond election was a
process that had been ongoing for the past 2 years. In response to the 2009 bond election, the
Board of Education sent out a survey to all district patrons. After carefully considering feedback from
the community, the Board of Education is placing the most urgent projects
before voters. The priority projects identified
by the Board of Education include, Munson Primary, Mulvane Grade School, Lyle
Couch Field and the Transportation Facility.
From these priorities the Board of Education established Design
Committees. The Committees, whose members represented community residents and
district personnel, were tasked with prioritizing the district’s health,
safety, infrastructure, and educational space needs, and arrived at a consensus
as to how to best address the needs of the district and community. After careful study, the committee presented
its recommendations to the Board of Education. Those recommendations are the
basis for the school bond proposal.
• New classrooms, a reception
area and administration space at Munson Primary School, a building for
pre-K through second-grade students. The bond also would upgrade
mechanical systems and improve energy efficiency.
• A new
gymnasium and classrooms at Mulvane Grade School, which serves third-
through fifth-grade students. Classrooms would serve as storm shelters,
and the gym would be leased by the Mulvane Recreation Commission during
• An all-weather field and eight-lane track at
Mulvane Middle School. The bond also would pay for parking and bleacher
improvements and locker room facilities.
• An expansion and renovation work at the district’s transportation building.
