Good morning everyone. At a time when good news seems to be at a premium I wanted to let everyone know that USD 290 has finalized a bond refinance that will save taxpayers $9.6 million dollars over the life of our construction bonds! It also allows us to complete bond payments 4 years in advance zeroing our bond balance in 2036 instead of 2040! Thank you USD 290 patrons for providing such incredible spaces for our kids and our community!
Riley Meyerkorth has certified in the PAC! Riley was able to quickly and accurately complete his assessment. Riley's scenario was an unamplified performance. Even with no microphones, Riley had to move audio and video through the system. Congrats Riley!
