(ABC 6 News) – The Grand Meadow School District held a community Q-and-A on Tuesday as they look to make changes with a special election.

The school is proposing two questions on the ballot. The first will be for updates and maintenance to the schools exterior and HVAC system, costing $2.3 million.

The second question is to address district growth with expansions to their Early Learning Space and Career Tech Education, costing $2.6 million.

Board members believe these changes will not only benefit the school but also the entire community.

“The center of the community is usually the school, especially in a smaller town like this. If we increase the enrollment here at the school it can bring in a few more dollars in to the school and help fund some things and keep the community growing,” said Dan Geier, School Board Chair.

There will be another community Q-and-A session on October 17. The final vote will take place November 7.
