December 21, 2021

Since January, our school district has been exploring possible facility improvements, and that work has culminated in Board of Education (BOE) action on December 17, 2021. At that meeting, the BOE approved a resolution that puts us on track for a bond election on April 26, 2022. This is the result of months of work and collaboration among many different community groups and USD 460 staff, and includes significant improvements and changes across the district.

At the beginning of 2022, community and district leaders plan to engage our community in discussions about what our top priorities are and how we scale our project to reflect the types of improvements our community wants to make to our schools. This community engagement will include many opportunities for our district leadership to provide information and receive feedback on our proposals. We are looking forward to this community-wide discussion and believe we will create a final plan that will positively impact the youth of Hesston for many generations to come.

There will be much more information coming as we transition to 2022, and we look forward to our upcoming discussions about the future of USD 460!

Respectfully,

Ben Proctor, Superintendent
