OF A SPECIAL MEETING OF THE GOVERNING BOARD
OF THE MESA UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 4
TUESDAY, JUNE 5, 2012
MESA PUBLIC SCHOOLS CURRICULUM SERVICES CENTER
549 North Stapley Drive, Mesa, AZ
1. Personnel Request
Dr. Cowan introduced Dr. Timothy Richards and informed the Board that with their approval of the administrative personnel request, they will be appointing him as the new principal of Westwood High School.
On the motion of Mr. Nichols, the Board unanimously recommended approval of the Administrative Personnel Request.
2. Recommendations of the Capital Facilities Planning Committee
Dr. Cowan advised the Board that in order to have a bond put on the November 2012 ballot, a resolution must be passed to call for the election. The resolution should indicate the total authority amount and the average estimated tax impact to the community.
Ms. Sylvester explained that in 2005, Mesa Public Schools was authorized by voters to sell $212.5 million in bonds for new buildings and renovations, new schools, building additions, technology, and new buses. However, only $204 million of the bonds from the 2005 election have been sold. The Board determined they would not sell the last $8.5 million because the need to build new schools no longer existed.
3. Bond Resolution
The meeting adjourned at 6:51 p.m.
