USD 460 is currently exploring long-term plans for our district facilities. Our last bond project was passed in 2002, and we make our final payment on that project in September 2022. We currently levy 12 mills on our bond and interest payment and could consider a new bond project.

We are working with SPT Architecture and have formed a community-based Facilities Steering Committee to explore a possible bond project in Hesston Schools. This committee will meet every few weeks over the course of the 2021 fall semester, and we will provide updates on the committee's work. You will find notes from these meetings under Important Links on the left side of this page.

It is exciting to think about improving our school district facilities, and there will likely be many ideas shared on how we can best prioritize the improvement we need to make and want to make. We will utilize our website to communicate our work, and as always, we will ask for everyone's thoughts and feedback as ideas develop.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me anytime with thoughts or questions on this topic or anything we do in Hesston Schools. My email address is ben.proctor@usd460 and our central office number is 620-327-4931.

Respectfully,

Ben Proctor, Superintendent
