EUREKA, MO. - Despite the decision by Rockwood School District Superintendent Bruce Borchers less than two months ago to not seek a bond issue or tax increase next spring, the Rockwood School Board appears to be revisiting that decision.
Near the end of the last board of directors meeting on December 1st, concern for the structural integrity of a wall at Ellisville Elementary School
prompted the decision to put a possible spring facilities bond issue on the agenda for this week's board meeting.
However, a November 4th email from Superintendent Borchers to the board identified approximately $800,000 from an unused arbitrage account from the 2010 Bond Issue that is available for this repair. (A copy of this email is posted to the Rockwood School District website under the agenda for this week's board meeting.
It is titled, "Ellisville Elementary - attachment 1".)
