During their regular meeting Monday night, Sheridan County School District 2 Board of Trustees learned that the issue of funding for a new Coffeen Elementary has still not been resolved.
Superintendent Craig Dougherty said that they had visited with Governor Matt Mead and are continuing to work with local legislators to make their case for Coffeen, adding that if the school not getting funded really backs them up a couple of years, pushing back future projects like Fort Mackenzie. Dougherty maintained that according to the School Facilities Commission's list of prioritized capital construction projects, Coffeen should be funded before Natrona County School District projects.
Also last night, the board approved the donation of three commercial compressors from Pacific Power. School Facilities Director Julie Carroll.
She said the district should not incur any extra cost when the compressors are installed. The board also heard their FY12 quarterly financial update. District Business Manager Roxie Taft stated that as of December 31, 2011 the district had received 57.89 percent of its General Fund revenues for the year which is right on track, and revenues compared to expenditures are where she would like them at this point in the year.
