|Master Building Plan Before Galesburg School Board
|A plan the Galesburg School District has spent more than six months working on is finally complete, and will get its first look by the Galesburg School Board.
The District-205 Board Monday night will review the findings of the district's Master Facilities Planning Committee.
District officials say a 56 page report has been compiled addressing 72 different facets of the district's infrastructure that could be somehow altered over the next two decades.
Assistant Superintendent for Finance and Operations Guy Cahill has said while finances are a concern given the state budget situation, the plan is also about making changes to district facilities while either not impacting or improving student achievement -- as an example, he says, getting more natural light into classrooms.
The Galesburg School Board will not vote on the plan Monday night -- that vote will come in June.
The District-205 Board will also honor the district's retirees at a reception before Monday night's meeting, and during a ceremony at the beginning of it.
They'll also make adjustments to the district's budget now that the district's "Operation Program/Job Save" plan has been approved and put into effect.
The District-205 retiree reception is at 6:30 p.m. Monday, with the regular meeting at 7:00, both at Lincoln School.
