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!
Our third student has certified in the PAC! Congratulations Erin Smith on completing your PAC training, we are excited to have you work your first performance in the near future. Erin completed her scenario based test in record time, with high accuracy!

The Technology Department worked late last night to replace a piece of equipment that had been identified as a network bottleneck. End result, doubled our internet speed for all users! Still some work to be done to finalize things for student arrival in 2020, but we'll be ready!
