USD 426 Bond Questions and Answers
USD 426 has hosted three bond informational meetings in the past month. Two had building tours and the last was held at the board room on October 20th. These meetings were held to provide information about the projects included in the requested bond question and also to answer questions of those in attendance. I would like to provide some answers to some of the questions that were asked for clarification.
I want to assure everyone that we have tried to be as mindful as possible with the tax dollars we are requesting. I also would like all those that attended any of our meetings to know, we did listen and are planning accordingly. We appreciate everyone’s comments and questions during this process and would simply conclude by saying, “Please remember to vote on November 2nd.”

Plan for Continuity of Services
USD 426 was able to have in person school the entire school year last year (except for 10 days at the Jr/Sr High Level) and we look forward to another successful year in 2021-22. As part of the federal government allotting many dollars to states and school districts, we must post our basic plan for the continuity of school services.
Please feel free to give Mr. Joonas a call with any questions or concerns about this plan. It can be adjusted at any time with patron and board input.
